Manufacturing Day

A Nationwide Celebration of Makers 

Manufacturing Day is a national initiative that puts a spotlight on manufacturing. In New Mexico, it’s a month-long spotlight on New Mexico-made products and the more than 27,000 New Mexicans working in the manufacturing industry. It’s an opportunity to enhance public knowledge about the economic impact of manufacturing in our state, highlight resources, and introduce students to careers in manufacturing.

Celebrated every October, events include tours of manufacturing facilities and presentations that demonstrate the vast range of products made in New Mexico. Most events are open to the public.
