Cooper Standard, like other manufacturing companies across North America, is hosting Manufacturing Day events throughout October to help its communities and future generations thrive. As a Silver Sponsor and event host for Manufacturing Day, Cooper Standard employees are educating attendees about the benefits of manufacturing careers and underscoring the industry’s importance to the national economy. Produced by the National Association of Manufacturers, The Manufacturing Institute, Fabricators and Manufacturers Association International and Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Manufacturing Day is an annual event during which companies showcase modern manufacturing and foster interest in manufacturing careers. It is a growing grassroots movement of manufacturers dedicated to overcoming the shared challenges facing manufacturers today. This year, more than 2,167 events are slated in North America throughout October, which is coming to be known as Manufacturing Month. “Cooper Standard is excited to again host Manufacturing Day events to introduce the next generation to the many career opportunities in modern manufacturing,” said Jeffrey Edwards, chairman and CEO, Cooper Standard.
