Today is Manufacturing Day! I want to give a big shout out to all the manufacturers in the Houston area.
Manufacturing Day is an annual event in North America. Manufacturers open their doors to showcase the potential of modern manufacturing and foster interest in manufacturing careers.
The average person, if they don’t have a connection to manufacturing doesn’t know that it is alive, well and thriving. Manufacturing is one of the primary drivers of the North American economy. They may think we don’t make anything anymore, or that all manufacturing has moved to China, but they are wrong. They may still harbor the belief that it’s dangerous and dirty.
Modern manufacturing environments are commonly thought of as dark, dangerous factories designed for low-skilled workers. Manufacturing Day addresses this misperception by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors, They can show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing really is today:
• Manufacturing is technologically advanced, with ample use of automation, 3-D printing, robots, and screen technology.
• The annual average salary of manufacturing workers is more than $77,000.
• Manufacturers have the highest job tenure in the private sector.
• 90 percent of manufacturing workers have medical benefits.
Manufacturing is making a comeback in the United States. Company initiatives, federal and state policies support new technologies that make American manufacturing globally competitive. Thus creating businesses and jobs across the country. Manufacturing Day celebrates this momentum driven by innovation. You can celebrate it too!
You can celebrate manufacturing day and promote manufacturing by

The book, 52 Tips to Turn Your Website Into a Sales Machine, came from questions that many of my manufacturing clients brought up in our meetings regarding their websites. After answering many of the same questions multiple times with different manufacturers, I wrote a book to help thrm.
