Tomorrow is National Manufacturing Day and we couldn’t be more excited. To celebrate, the Exact team has traveled down to Meadville, PA, a town which encompasses the heart and soul of U.S. manufacturing. Nicknamed the Tool City, USA, Meadville is home to many tool and die machine shops which contribute significantly to the local and national economy.
This week we are spending time with many of these Meadville manufacturers not only to join them in celebrating National Manufacturing Day, but also to get a better sense of what their challenges and pain points are and how our technology can help them. After all, it is shops like these that are truly driving the “Made in the USA” comeback.
Tonight we, along with the Northwestern Pennsylvania Chapter of National Tool Machinist Association (NTMA), are inviting all Meadville manufacturers to join us in a night of celebration. We will be offering complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks at the Iroquois Boating & Fishing Club from 5pm – 7pm and we hope to see you there!
Although it falls on October 4th this year, in our minds, Manufacturing Day can and should be every day. It’s a time to celebrate small business manufacturers and what they’re doing for the U.S. economy, but also serves as an important inflection point. What does the future look like? What do we need to do to continue to build a stronger, resilient U.S. economy?
How are you celebrating National Manufacturing Day?
