There is no denying the impact MFG Day has had and will continue to have on the manufacturing industry as a whole. Businesses from all around the United States come together to show the public just how far the industry has advanced. This is not only benefiting the companies which take part but the local communities and future workforce as well. Students often overlook any career where manufacturing is a focus. With manufacturing becoming a highly advanced and incredibly fruitful industry, students must recognize just how much opportunity it can offer. Manufacturing Day is here to help portray that image and show the world what the industry has truly become.
On-Site with NJMEP’s 6th Annual “Made In New Jersey” National Manufacturing Day
This most recent MFG Day, Manufacturing Talk Radio was lucky enough to be invited to the ‘Made In New Jersey’ Manufacturing Day celebration hosted by NJMEP at the Bridgewater Marriott. The day was filled with incredible keynote speeches and fascinating companies sharing their experiences and expertise. The keynote’s were kicked off by John W. Kennedy and he shared a few inspiring stories any manufacturer will find uplifting.

Collaboration and Education
Breakout sessions were also taking place so business leaders can learn about the latest trends shaping the future of manufacturing and how to best handle these disruptions. Some of the topics discussed in the Breakout sessions included Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity, Cyber Security and so much more. These kind of collaborative settings are difficult to come by but can be an incredible source of valuable knowledge to help them propel their business forward in the 21st century.
Recognizing Local Manufacturers
NJMEP wasn’t just hosting an incredible Manufacturing Day event, they took this chance to celebrate the companies and individuals that make New Jersey manufacturing so special. Five companies and one individual were recognized out of 24 finalists for their contribution to the state’s $44.5 billion manufacturing industry.
