“Shell Lubricants is proud to support Manufacturing Day again this year as the platinum sponsor in hopes that we can continue to educate and encourage people to become part of this critically-important industry,” said Jacqueline Gates, Industrial Marketing Manager at Shell Lubricants. “As the manufacturer and supplier of world-class lubricants, we understand the vital role manufacturing plays in the success and growth of this country.”
Manufacturers, governmental agencies, local colleges and universities across the country will celebrate Manufacturing Day. Each manufacturing facility will help educate local communities on the continued growth of the manufacturing industry and the positive impact that their companies make on the fabric and economy of the United States. The open house events will highlight day-to-day activities, including live demonstrations and facility tours, as well as question and answer sessions providing insight on the innovative and challenging environment of today’s manufacturers. Attendees will also learn about the rewarding careers available within the industry.
In 2013, the second annual Manufacturing Day proved to be bigger and more successful than its opening year, raking in an attendance of more than 35,000 guests at the 825 participating manufacturers across 48 states. This surpassed the goal of 500 nationwide events and 18,000 attendees. With the help of Shell Lubricants and several other U.S. manufacturing organizations, the 2014 goal is 1,500 Manufacturing Day events and at least 50,000 individuals in attendance.
