Manufacturing Day

Creators Wanted – Inspiring the Next Generation of Manufacturers 

Held annually on the first Friday in October, Manufacturing Day helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders.

Get Involved – Join the FCMA member companies below who are committed to hosting an event at their facility! We are shooting for 50 companies to take Northeast Florida by storm. Email Amanda@fcmaweb.com for more information.
