Manufacturing Day℠ was created as a way to acknowledge and honor the success of today’s manufacturers while inspiring the next generation of future manufacturers.

On October 5, 2018 New Jersey will join others across the country to celebrate Manufacturing Day at The Marigold, located at 315 Churchill Avenue, in Somerset, New Jersey. This annual event, hosted by NJ Manufacturers Extension Program (MEP), attracts hundreds of manufacturers, as well as those who serve them. Participants come from across the state to attend workshops, break-out sessions and other educational programs designed specifically to address the critical and timely needs of New Jersey manufacturers.
