This year’s Manufacturing Day has added another sponsor.

The National Tooling & Machining Association has announced its support for the Oct. 7 event for the third year in a row.

Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration of the jobs available in manufacturing such as sheet metal forming and the industry’s positive impact on the U.S. economy.

Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, thanked the machining group for its support.

“The co-producers are grateful for the continued, dedicated support of NTMA which is so committed to serving the machinery and tooling manufacturers that drive the manufacturing sector forward,” Youdell said. “Their reputation and their reach to professionals in the industry, as well as their efforts to develop a new generation of skilled employees for the industry through their apprenticeship program and the National Robotics League, will help to generate participation in Manufacturing Day events across the nation.”
