From Texas, we will travel to New York, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. If you can’t join us in person, you can still follow the action and help amplify the message.

We want to show the country the true story of modern manufacturing and the incredible, rewarding careers we offer.

You can find the full list of our stops on our tour website and access the opening remarks here from our kickoff event in Austin.

Follow along with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Don’t forget to use #StateofMFG. We are excited to join with manufacturers, business leaders, elected officials and students from across the country to share the promise of manufacturing’s future and our commitment to “be the solution” for the challenges facing our communities and our country.

See you on the tour!
