Manufacturer Resources

Manufacturer Resources

Celebrate manufacturing by engaging with your community, future workforce and other local leaders by sharing information about your business and the field of manufacturing. Manufacturing Day can be a way you inspire the next generation of innovators and makers. Officially held the first Friday of each October, Iowa companies and community organizations can plan their events for any date that works best for them and celebrate Iowa manufacturing all year.

We work to help companies and communities connect with educators for Manufacturing Day events. Let us help you expand your talent pipeline through Iowa Manufacturing Day!
