Manufacturing Month October 2021

October is Manufacturing Month in Florida, highlighted by Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 1st.

The goal of Manufacturing Month in Florida is to bring awareness to the manufacturing industry nationwide, but for SAMA, specifically to the Sarasota and Manatee county region.

Awareness begins with our youth, and what better way to do that than getting grade schoolers excited about manufacturing by having our local manufacturers host plant tours.  We are asking all local manufacturers to participate, not just SAMA members.  To participate, please complete the following form.  This information will be passed along to the county coordinators, so we can match the students best suited for your facility tour.
