Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturing Day occurs on the first Friday in October — this year Manufacturing Day is Oct 5, 2018.

Wayne County's Manufacturing Day- presented in a collaborative effort with the Wooster and Orrville Chambers and the Wayne Economic Development Council - is particularly unique as students from every school district in the area are involved in helping solve the problem of connecting workers with employers in need of skilled labor.

Last year, More than 500 high school-aged students got a first-hand look at top employers such as Schaeffler, Artiflex, Akron Brass and countless others.
