• Faces of Manufacturing

  • ND loves manufacturing! The industry accounts for 7.3% of the state’s GDP. Over 27,000 North Dakotans are employed in the industry – that’s 6.7% of the workforce. Every manufacturing job looks different, just like each worker’s background looks different too. Technology and innovation have changed how workers are attracted, retained, and trained in this sector. Each job is important to each business and the success of our state. 

  • We are now accepting nominations to showcase Faces of Manufacturing – demonstrating the diversity in a vital industry and showcasing the opportunities that are here in North Dakota. We want to celebrate the creators, we know you do too!

  •  

  • WHO SHOULD BE NOMINATED:
    Someone that works in the manufacturing industry. Manufacturing is no longer just grease and gears. It looks different today than when our grandfathers got the job done. There is still welding and wrenches but now innovation has been introduced but the face of manufacturing has changed

    Nominate your operators, machinists, HR specialists, R&D, welders, engineers, painters, the field isn’t limited and we think they all should be nominated.

     

    WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT:
    Applications will be reviewed, and winners selected in July. We are excited to showcase real work being done in North Dakota, individuals getting the job done. Winners will be individually showcased beginning in August leading up to MFG Day on October 4. We will ask them for a headshot to help tell their story.

     

    OUR GOAL:
    Celebrate the workforce of North Dakota Manufacturing while showcasing the potential in this industry and highlight the diversity in positions.

     

    DEADLINE:
