Ranken will host a live MFG Day event across all three locations on Thursday, October 21st.

Launched annually on the first Friday in October with events that continue nationwide throughout the month, MFG Day helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders. MFG Day empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.

From 9am to 1pm on Thursday, October 21st, Ranken’s Manufacturing Division will open its doors for MFG Day, a nationwide celebration of modern manufacturing. MFG Day is intended to address common misconceptions about manufacturing by giving the manufacturing industry an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t.
