MFG Week West Michigan

MFG Day was designed to expand knowledge about manufacturing careers and the role that the manufacturing industry plays in the North American economy.  Manufacturing is critical to the health of West Michigan so the industry is collaborating to expand the event to MFG Week West Michigan.

Look at what Kent County did in 2016 for MFG Week West Michigan!

  • 992 students, 71 educators and 45 parents from 19 schools visited 23 manufacturers.
