Heyl & Patterson Proudly Celebrates Manufacturing Day

Posted by H&P Blog on Wed, Sep 30, 2015 @ 09:00 AM

Manufacturing Day is the first Friday in October, and is a national showcase for the importance of manufacturing in the U.S. economy, giving American manufacturers the opportunity to show their products to the world.  Americans continue to create new products and unlock new technologies that grow the economy, so Manufacturing Day celebrates those who proudly stand behind their goods and services, helping to revitalize American manufacturing.  This will inspire young people to pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering, because today’s science, technology, engineering and math graduates will power the next chapter of American production and innovation.  In 2015, the event will be celebrated on Friday, October 2, and Heyl & Patterson is proud to recognize our place and our brethren in the manufacturing industry.
