UT Center for Industrial Services Celebrates Tennessee Manufacturers

In conjunction with Manufacturing Day nationally, the UT Center for Industrial Services (CIS) is hosting events around the state to promote its Made in Tennessee initiative, honor the state’s manufacturers, and celebrate CIS’ 50th birthday.

The Manufacturing Day Showcases will be held throughout October in each of the nine economic development regions in Tennessee. The showcases will feature luncheons, plant tours, and presentations to honor Made in Tennessee companies.  Area manufacturers are invited.

“Manufacturing is an integral part of Tennessee’s economy, and we’re proud to promote the state’s manufacturers through these events and with our Made in Tennessee website,” said Paul Jennings, executive director of the Center for Industrial Services. “The goal of the Made in Tennessee program is to support the Volunteer State’s manufacturing community by raising awareness of its products and providing resources to help it grow. We want to encourage all Tennesseans to buy products made by Tennessee companies.”

All showcases are free, but spaces are limited. Please email or call Patty Wells (615-253-6371 or patty.wells@tennessee.edu) to reserve a spot.
