Manufacturing Day occurs on the first Friday in October — this year Manufacturing Day is Oct 6, 2017.
Manufacturing Day (MFG DAY) addresses common misconceptions about 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 MFG DAY, 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.
Fairfield is home to many manufacturing companies and continues to draw attention to the growing manufacturing scene. Manufacturing companies are drawn to Fairfield’s high quality and abundant water source, state of the art sewer treatment facilities, affordable land costs, strategic Bay Area location on major transportations routes and pro-business local government.
Manufacturing, especially food and beverage processing, is built into the culture of the city. Some of the biggest employers in the region produce high-quality items enjoyed by people across the globe with companies like Jelly Belly, InBev Anheuser-Busch, Engelhart Gourmet Foods, Just Desserts of San Francisco, Frank-Lin Distillers Products, Heretic Brewery, Calbee Snacks and many more leading the way.
So as Manufacturing Day approaches, please take a second to recognize the companies that create not only great products for us, but jobs, investment and a healthy economy.
