National MFG Day is Friday, October 3, ,2014.  More than 1500 American manufacturers are hosting events to bring more attention to the importance of manufacturing to our economy and our society.  Conard will hold an Open House from 10 AM to 4 PM featuring guided tours of our photochemical etching and electroforming capabilities.

Space is limited.  Please register for the factory tour here.

The MFG Day Mission

... addresses common misperceptions about American manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after the annual event manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.

Supported by a group of industry sponsors and co-producers, MFG DAY is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. The rallying point for a growing mass movement, MFG DAY empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.

Participation in MFG Day 2014 is free.  Sign up your company here!
