Manufacturing Day 2020

'We should have fewer people doing law and finance...and more people making stuff' - Elon Musk #MFGDay20

The video is a clip of Elon Musk, the guy from Tesla/SpaceX/The Boring Company/OpenAI/Neuralink/etc (not sure I really needed to point out who he is lol), on a Joe Rogan podcast where they start to discuss manufacturing. I really liked the sound byte and though it would fit nicely into a little machining promo video. Hopefully you like it. If you can use it to help inspire the next generation of machinists/makers at your #MFGDay, have at it!


What is Manufacturing Day?

Manufacturing Day is meant to help showcase what manufacturing is really like today to our up and coming creators/makers. It's an opportunity for companies to promote the importance of manufacturing on local, national and global levels. This is the day to connect with the next generation and show them how amazing manufacturing can be.
