Long Island’s Manufacturing Month

manufacturing month on long island

The Cradle of Aviation Museum in partnership with Suffolk Community College and their local manufacturing professionals, cordially invites you and your students to participate in Long Island’s Manufacturing Month. While Manufacturing Day is celebrated on the first Friday of October, there are so many opportunities in our region; they have curated a month-long celebration to excite, engage, and inform students about innovative careers in the field.

Manufacturing Month on Long Island

Manufacturing is a high-wage, high-demand industry that is essential to our economy. It is also a growing industry, with millions of new jobs expected to be created in the coming years. However, there is a shortage of skilled workers in manufacturing, and we need to do more to encourage young people to consider careers in this field. Please consider joining us at one of the following FREE events this October.

  • Manufacturing Month Kickoff at the Cradle Aviation Museum, Wednesday, October 11th
  • Career Conversations at the Cradle of Aviation Museum, Saturday, October 14th
  • Manufacturing Month Kickoff at Suffolk Community College, Thursday, October 19th

There are also corporate tours ongoing! To see the list of organizations participating and their dates of service, please see the link:
