Manufacturing Day 2017 is More Important Than Ever to Showcase Job Opportunities

MFG Day

In 2012, the Manufacturers Association International and Founding Partner Fabricators together created MFG DAY and was very well received. It’s growing support from various companies and a clear mission to achieve its goals was recognized and appreciated by the then President of the United States, Barack Obama.

On October 2nd, 2014, President Obama issued a proclamation stating the first Friday of October as National Manufacturing Day. The presidential proclamation stated: “On National Manufacturing Day, more than 1,600 American manufacturers will open their doors and take up the important work of inspiring our young people to pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering.”

Now, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) holds NMD annually with the support of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).

MFG Day Mission

The mission of celebrating Manufacturing Day (MFG DAY) is to empower and inspire the next generation of manufacturers.

Many manufacturing companies also consider this as an opportunity to:

Clear the misconceptions about manufacturing

Provide a sneak-peak into the manufacturing world

Spread awareness of the manufacturing processes

Highlight the importance of manufacturers in the community

Familiarize people to manufacturing careers

Since 2012, the number of events hosted across the country on MFG DAY has increased over a remarkable 1000%. All 50 states actively participate in not only creating awareness but also in fulfilling the four goals of NAM:

#1 Attract Investment

#2 Lead Innovation

#3 Expand Global Market Access

#4 Develop a 21st Century Workforce

Events across the nation attract students, investors, educators, businesses and the general public. As per reports, in 2016, approximately 500K participated in various events, which included more than 200K students.

Maryland Isn’t Just Crab Cakes and Football, it’s Manufacturing too!

Maryland manufacturing

Maryland, with its strategic location, skilled professional and technical workers and quality infrastructure prove to be the ideal state for manufacturing in the U.S. Although it is not as large as the other states, it is an important driver of research and development, exports, and employment in numerous industries.

In 2015, the wealth accumulated by Maryland exports of manufactured goods accounted to $40.2 billion. Let us have a deeper dive into the major manufacturing industries and the leaders in each sector.

Computer and Electronics Industry

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the highest employing sector in 2016 was in the computer and electronic products industry (17,600 jobs). This manufacturing industry accounts for $4.3 billion of wealth to the economy. Although only a handful of tech companies dominate Maryland’s export base, it is estimated they account for more than their fair share of the economy.

Zentech is one of the largest computer and electronic manufacturers of all time and located in Maryland. They manufacture circuit-board-based products primarily for medical and dental clients, and defense. This Maryland company has been recognized twice in the past eight years by INC 500, as one of the fastest growing businesses in America.

America’s Vices

Food, Tobacco, and alcohol. The food manufacturing industry was Maryland’s second largest employer in 2016. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, it generates about 15,100 jobs. The food, beverage and tobacco manufacturers contribute to a total of $2.9 billion in economic wealth.  In the 1770s, the tobacco trade took center stage in Maryland’s economy. Eventually, many manufacturing segments also emerged, which still flourish even today.

Alcoholic beverages are soon to change Maryland’s industry. In 2017, Diageo, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of alcoholic beverages declared its decision to invest in Baltimore County by planning to build a Guinness brewery and taproom in Relay. It adds feathers to Maryland’s cap, as this facility will be the Diageo’s sole brewery in America.

 

Having the nation’s highest number of doctoral engineers and scientists, Maryland provides the complete package of a skilled workforce.  A record of exporting goods to 209 countries through the port of Baltimore, Maryland also provides excellent transportation support. With companies like IBM and Zentech, the high-end technologies are available with no extra effort. A combination of all these factors will undoubtedly propel Maryland to the best manufacturing economy the state has seen for years to come.

Tennessee Manufactures More Than Corvettes, Whiskey, and Great Music

Tennessee manufacturers

Manufacturing success in Tennessee is no coincidence. They have many benefits to offer manufacturers like a centralized location with eight intersecting highways running through it, which are big assets for the transportation of goods. Another significant benefit is the large amounts of water that serve as a resource for industrial processes. Inside its manufacturing sector, vehicles, food and beverage, and chemicals currently have the biggest impact on Tennessee manufacturing.

Big Investments in Automotive:

In 2015, Business Facilities Magazine awarded Tennessee 1st place for automotive manufacturing power and 1st in the southeast for auto industry employment. Since then, a variety of significant investments have resulted in the creation of auto plants for Nissan, Volkswagen, and General Motors. These big brands make the automotive industry the most important sector in the state. Last year, 6.3% of all US-manufactured cars came from Tennessee. The industry also employed 4% of all Tennessee state workers. Indeed, we can praise the state for the force in the automotive sector, but what makes it a truly successful manufacturing economy is the diversity of products and industries.

Unparalleled Food and Beverage:

Food and beverage manufacturing is also a major strength for Tennessee. Food and beverage exports from Tennessee reach major markets around the world. Tennessee exports now enter the markets of France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, The United Kingdom and amount to more than $1.11 billion in revenue. Whiskey alone accounts for $590 million. But hey, it IS Tennessee whiskey.

The sheer number of food and beverage factories are an indication of their importance to the economy of Tennessee. The state’s Department of Agriculture sites that there are 1,688 registered food and beverage processing manufacturers and warehouses and 148 domestic kitchen permits. Together, they employ about 36,000 workers.

Rapidly Growing Chemicals:

The chemical sector has grown rapidly over the last couple of years. Just three years ago, basic chemicals produced $2.1 billion in revenue. According to the Department of Community and Economic Development, last year it generated a whopping $4.9 billion. Chemicals and plastics not only produce a lot of jobs, about 48 thousand, but they also pay 38% better than the average manufacturing salary. There are more than 700 chemical companies operating in Tennessee today. Among the key brands are American Industrial Partners Inc., Chattem, Inc., and Fujifilm Hunt Chemicals USA.

Forbes listed Tennessee as the 17th best state for doing business with the sixth best economic climate. Their diverse manufacturing scene and well-paying jobs only seem to be contributing to the improving state of Tennessee business. By simply looking at the rise in industry investments over the last few years, everything indicates that Tennessee manufacturing will continue to be an economic force to be reckoned with.
