October is Manufacturing Month

Throughout the country, October is packed with opportunities to discover the depth and diversity of manufacturing in the US.

This particularly important in Ohio. Why?

In state rankings, Ohio is third in the nation in terms of numbers of people employed in manufacturing and overall manufacturing capacity. Only California and Texas can match our capabilities. As a result since 2012, October has been officially designated as Manufacturing Month in Ohio.

So if you live anywhere in the Midwest in general or Ohio in particular, here are events you should plan to participate in:

Manufacturing Day | Oct 4
Manufacturing Day is a nationwide event designed to highlight manufacturing's vital role in national and regional economies and spotlight the wide range of high-skill,high-pay jobs available in modern manufacturing environments. 

Manufacturing Awards Dinner | Oct 10
This event is produced by the Dayton Business Journal and sponsored by DRMA to honor the best manufacturing firms in the region. Exceptional companies, nominated by their fellow manufacturers, are acknowledged for their accomplishments.(Update: See award winners here.)

AMTS 2013 | Oct 23 & 24
Produced by DRMA, the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Show (AMTS) is packed with equipment displays, the latest in new manufacturing technologies, and unique learning and networking opportunities.

Dayton Manufacturing Forum 2013 | Oct 29
Each year, DRMA partners with Clark Schaefer Hackett (CSH) to conduct a survey of regional manufacturers, in order to understand the issues and events that shape the manufacturing landscape in the Dayton region. The survey findings are captured in a comprehensive report, the Regional Manufacturing & Distribution Survey, which will be presented for discussion in the forum.
