As a manufacturing company, we are always excited when Manufacturing Day comes around. This past year in Manufacturing has been unlike any other we have faced. As with our fellow manufacturers, COVID-19 disrupted the production line in ways that forced new procedures into effect. This change had to happen fast to ensure safety and productivity. As we reflect on this past year, we want to take the time to share with you some fun background on manufacturing, show you who we really are, and why we all love what we do here.
What is MFG Day?
Manufacturing Day is a time to show the world the importance of manufacturing and to spread knowledge to inspire the next generation of makers. We are pleased to open our doors (virtually) to show young creators how intriguing the world of manufacturing can be.
The U.S. manufacturing industry is faced with a shortage of highly skilled creators to fill the jobs our country needs. In fact, by 2028, the U.S. will need to fill 4.6 million manufacturing jobs
The top priorities of Manufacturing Day as listed by the Manufacturing Institute are:
- Change the perception of careers in manufacturing to reflect its true status as the most advanced, high-tech industry in the country.
- Re-establish the U.S. as the global leader of manufacturing education.
- Advocate for education and job training policies that strengthen the U.S. manufacturing workforce.
That, on average, a job in manufacturing pays more than $84,000 a year in salary and benefits? Simply put, modern manufacturing is the path to a secure career and future.

Do What You Love
Here at Goodway, we love what we do. As you walk down the production line benches you will see Goodway creators hard at work. When asked why they like working as a manufacturer the number one answer was satisfaction. The satisfaction that a creator gets at the end of the day because they created something with their hands is undeniably powerful. Here at Goodway creating goes one step further; the solutions being created helps keep the world safe. Whether those solutions are for a dirty cooling tower that helps keep occupants safe from Legionella or a surface sanitizer system that helps keep business up and running safely. But we are not all work and no play. Not a day goes by with a little fun. The production floor is filled with classic pop and rock ballads that can be heard being sung throughout. The benefit to being a smaller manufacturing company is that here, from the veterans who have been here for more than 25 years to the newbies who have just started out, we are a family.
