Statistics show manufacturing jobs play a critical role in the growth and stability of economies across the globe.
To understand the importance of manufacturing from a different perspective, one must understand that most jobs, directly or indirectly, rely on manufacturing. For example, Apple is in the business of designing software, iPhone, IPad and IPods. Without large scale manufacturing, they would never be able to handle the demand for the device? Companies all over the world are in need of fast and reliable production in order to grow and meet the consumer demand. A challenge with today’s generation is the lack of knowledge about manufacturing and its effect on the world, which is why Yushin America strongly believes Manufacturing Day is very important!
Don’t think you will make enough money working in manufacturing? According to the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and Economic Policy Institute, manufacturing employees make 20 percent more than the average wage.
Manufacturing employed 12 million workers in 2013, which means almost 9 percent of the total U.S. employment was directly involved in manufacturing. In NAM’s latest study, data showed manufacturers contributed $2.09 trillion to the economy thus far, and still continues to increase every year. Let me shine this in a different light – manufacturing alone in the United States would be the ninth largest economy in the world. If you’re not considering working in this field due to stability or income, I can assure you after reviewing the facts your opinion will change.
Here at Yushin America, we take pride in working to assist manufacturers with everyday tasks by creating elite and specific robots to fit their needs. Our goal is to improve safety, quality and productivity, which in turn will assist in national or even global growth. Some of the greatest minds figured out methods to enhance production speed and efficiency in manufacturing. The contributions of technological advances in manufacturing allowed for quicker economic growth over the decades, which is a huge reason why our country is one of the seven “Great Powers”.
As a proud partner of Manufacturing Day, we encourage all individuals with different backgrounds to participate in this exciting and educational event. The experience of watching the machines in action and learning about our past, present and future of manufacturing will leave you with new insights on how the world we live in works.
Please take the time on October 2, 2015 to visit open house exhibits on Manufacturing Day – we know you won’t regret it!
