The Chemung County Chamber of Commerce MFG Day Task Force is proud to continue to grow
"Made in Chemung County" MFG Day into "Made in the Southern Tier" MFG Day after a successful first two years of the project.

MFG Day is the first Friday of October each year. The day highlights the importance of manufacturing to the economy, provides manufacturers with the opportunity to showcase the potential of modern manufacturing, and fosters interest in its many rewarding careers.

In 2017, more than 2,500 MFG Day events were held across the U.S. The initiative is well-established and far-reaching. For more information about National Manufacturing Day, please visit
