MFG Days 2021 shines a virtual spotlight on local manufacturers and manufacturing career opportunities available in the South Bend Region.
The South Bend Regional Chamber launched MFG Days in 2014 and continues to extend the reach, working with regional partners, Greater Niles Chamber, Michigan Works! and area businesses and educators. . The digital format established in 2020 extended the reach of this annual event beyond one day–and to more students, educators, parents and community members–with more than 10,000 page views. Throughout the month of October, we’ll provide more resources such as the LIFT Network Career Pathways video series, career pathway information including stats and videos, industry chats, virtual tours, and other tools to help educators and students learn more about the manufacturing workforce.
MFG Days programming provides the opportunity to: learn about manufacturing and manufacturing careers; engage a new generation of manufacturers; introduce cool (and functional!) things being made in our community; encourage entrepreneurship; and inspire creativity
