Led by the U.S. Department of Commerce, in partnership with public and private sector leaders across the country, Manufacturing Day was held Friday, Oct. 3, to highlight the contributions of manufacturers to the economic health of the United States. At the same time, with as many as 50,000 people expected to visit a factory or plant, Manufacturing Day raised awareness of the high-skilled job opportunities in manufacturing.

From Palmdale, California, and Melbourne, Florida, to Lake Charles, Louisiana and Baltimore, Maryland, Northrop Grumman welcomed speakers, elected officials, students and neighbors to tour its factories. In nine different locations, the company gave participants a close-up look at the manufacturing processes that result in leading-edge satellites, aircraft and electronics.

Deputy U.S. Commerce Secretary Bruce Andrews visited Northrop Grumman's Electronic Systems facility in Linthicum, Maryland, and toured its factory, met local students and elected officials, and delivered comments on the importance of manufacturing to the national economy and the nation's security.

During Manufacturing Day, Northrop Grumman touted the need for more savvy professionals educated in science, technology, engineering and math – the STEM fields – and encouraged elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities to take the steps necessary to prepare young people for the technical careers of today and tomorrow.

Northrop Grumman and other participating businesses nationwide aimed to meet one of the core goals of Manufacturing Day: to get more of the nation's youth interested and excited about a career in modern manufacturing.
