Washington D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement to mark National Manufacturing Day, an annual celebration of the important role manufacturing plays in the U.S. economy. 

“Manufacturing is one of our state’s most important industries, and Ohio workers continue to drive the success of the industry across the state,” said Brown. “On National Manufacturing Day, we celebrate the innovation and skill of manufacturing workers in Ohio and honor the Dignity of Work.”

In August, Brown’s office wrapped up another year of summer manufacturing camps all across Ohio. Since 2003, Brown’s office has partnered with local businesses and community leaders to host more than 90 camps, hosting 34 camps in 26 counties this year. 

Brown’s summer manufacturing camps help introduce kids and their parents to an up-to-date, real-world understanding of American manufacturing. This learning opportunity gives local students the opportunity to learn about careers in their community, tour local manufacturing facilities, and learn from experts. Students learn how products are made, participate in team-building exercises, and work on a project specific to their community.
