Manufacturing Week in America Coming Soon

At the beginning of June, I posted a link to Evolving Excellence highlighting the Manufacturing Week in America.  It is Oct. 2 – 7, which is just around the corner.

I received a comment about that post from Gray Rinehart.  North Carolina State University is sponsoring a “Manufacturing Makes It Real Tour” the week before Manufacturing Week in America.  It is the week of Sept. 27 – Oct. 1, 2010.  The tour will be stopping at Thomas Built Buses, PolyChem Alloy, Elastic Therapy, as well as 7 or 8 other stops.

This sounds like a great two weeks for Manufacturing in the U.S.  Are there any other events like this going on this year?  If so, leave information about it in the comments.

I hope there is great participation as I believe manufacturing is foundational to our country and its strength.

Have a great weekend!
