Manufacturing Week

We’re making it in Toledo. Smart things like solar panels and biotech. Iconic things like Jeep® brand SUVs and Libbey glass. Which is why, when the US Census Bureau announces Manufacturing Week and the 7th annual observance of Manufacturing Day, we have major cause to celebrate. Many of our region’s top employers and a significant share of small businesses have a major manufacturing component and a giant impact on the local economy.

Our most important next steps are evaluating the amazing assets we have in our region and preparing for the future. Lucky for you, the Chamber is prepared to lead the charge. We have a number of year round initiatives to advance our economy and several upcoming events to continue this conversation.
