Edge Factor launched Rock MFG Day Toolkit

From classrooms, to school auditoriums to manufacturing facilities, everyone can Rock their MFG Day events with Edge Factor!

Manufacturing Day is an annual, national movement for manufacturers, educators, and community leaders to host events that raise awareness of careers and advanced technology in the world of manufacturing. The goal is simple: to inspire and build the workforce pipeline.  Edge Factor has created the Rock MFG Day toolkit to provide plug-and-play tools for MFG DAY events to host engaging live or virtual presentations. 

Register today to access this toolkit and ROCK your MFG Day events! Inspire students, families, and job-seekers to explore manufacturing careers, reach parents, raise awareness of local opportunities, and build relationships with schools and manufacturers in your community. 


Over the last few years, Edge Factor has empowered approx. 6000 MFG Day event hosts with turnkey tools and high impact resources to engage live and virtual audiences. This year is no different! The team at Edge Factor is launching the 2022 Rock MFG DAY toolkit to equip companies, associations, workforce development leaders, manufacturing training programs and schools with multimedia tools to complement and enhance their MFG DAY events!


The Rock MFG Day Toolkit will be available for free for everyone to watch, enjoy, and share the media from September 1 to November 30, 2022.  


The toolkit will include:

  • An inspiring 15-20 minute Keynote Presentation by Larissa Hofman, Vice President, Edge Factor.


  • “5 Days of career media including award winning films, Career Profiles, walk and talk tours of manufacturing companies called Virtual Workplace Experiences, and short videos that highlight how Soft Skills, and Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math topics are used in manufacturing.


  • “How To” Guides with step-by-step instructions on why and how to host an engaging event, and invite schools and companies to present on careers and training opportunities available in your community. 


  • Promotional tools to share the Rock MFG DAY Kit with your network and community.


“From classrooms and school assemblies to open door tours in manufacturing facilities, to stadiums of students to virtual community events… We’ve seen it all! Over the last 5 years, Edge Factor has partnered with thousands of organizations across the US and Canada to provide engaging tools for event hosts to engage their live and virtual audiences and showcase the extraordinary opportunities in manufacturing,” said Larissa Hofman, Vice President of Edge Factor. “I am honored to share my story in this year’s pre-recorded Rock MFG DAY Keynote Presentation, in hopes that my experiences will help students and job-seekers look ahead, know themselves, know their options, and consider a career in manufacturing!”


  1. In Edge Factor’s experience, these are the top benefits that companies, community and workforce leaders, and schools have identified for hosting MFG DAY events:

  2. Inspire students to pursue careers in manufacturing 

  3. Reach parents at home and change antiquated perceptions of the industry

  4. Engage with job-seekers and find potential new hires

  5. Build relationships with local schools and educators

  6. Help raise awareness of your company and what you do

  7. Showcase the career opportunities you offer

  8. Highlight the technology you use and how your company impacts the world


While these are all great things to do, we understand that hosting an event is not easy. Planning and promoting your upcoming event, hosting a high impact stage or Keynote presentation, taking students on a tour, and trying to plan the logistics... It can become a bit overwhelming, especially for manufacturers who are not typically involved with event planning.


A special thanks to the organization who have partnered with Edge Factor to make the Rock MFG Day Toolkit freely available: National Electrical Manufacturers’ Association, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, National Tooling and Machining Association, Skills Ontario, ABB Motors & Mechanical Inc., National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers, Mastercam, California's Arts, Media & Entertainment, Precision Metalforming Association, Canadia Fire Alarm Association.


These leaders are committed to helping manufacturing companies, schools, and workforce leaders with tangible, easy-to-use and share tools to host an awesome live or virtual MFG DAY event and recruit the next generation of innovators and manufacturers.

The Rock MFG DAY toolkit includes everything you need to plan, promote, host, and follow up on your virtual or live MFG DAY event. It’s plug and play - which means you can use parts or all of the toolkit on each of the days, or all of the days! 


What are you waiting for? Register today.

The Rock MFG Day Toolkit is available for FREE from September 1, 2022 to November 30, 2022
