Rockford, Illinois (PRWEB) September 02, 2014

The roster of Manufacturing Day 2014 sponsors recently added three new supporters, with Kronos Incorporated joining as a Silver Sponsor while MSC Industrial Supply Co. and Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. have joined as Bronze Sponsors.

Manufacturing Day sponsors provide the resources to support manufacturers participating in the program, a grassroots effort by U.S. manufacturers to improve public perception of manufacturing in America by coordinating awareness-raising activities at a variety of locations across the country on October 3, 2014.

Manufacturing Day is an annual national event, executed at the local level, that supports hundreds of manufacturers across the nation that host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers. A panel of co-producers comprised of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technologys (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and guest producer Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM) provide the centralized support necessary to coordinate this nationwide array of simultaneous events. The national media partner for the event is the Science Channel and the national movie partner is American Made Movie.

The co-producers are delighted that these corporations, which have such broad reach into the manufacturing sector and are so dedicated to serving their manufacturing customers, are choosing to put their full support behind Manufacturing Day 2014, said Ed Youdell, president and CEO of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association. Their reputation and their reach to professionals in the industry will help to generate participation in Manufacturing Day events across the nation.
