While October is nationally recognized as Manufacturing Month, this year on October 7, Quaker will, once again, celebrate Manufacturing Day.
This day is sponsored by the Manufacturing Institute and recognizes manufacturing employees across the United States. The first ever observance of this day was in October 2012 and received active participation from students, educators, parents, and other community members. Today, thousands of people participate in events across the country.
And it is a well-deserved week of recognition. Manufacturing employees make up 8.5% of the American workforce and contribute an estimated $2.77 trillion annually to the U.S economy.
There is always a need for manufacturing employees because of the role production plays in our economy. In fact, the manufacturing industry in the United States would be the eighth largest economy in the world.
At Quaker, we are not going to pass up this opportunity to formally recognize the outstanding effort our employees put forth each day. We are proud of all the amazing, intelligent and interesting people who have chosen to dedicate their time and talents to making the Quaker Difference for all of our customers. We genuinely appreciate all you do,
