Manufacturing Day 2017 is October 6

On Wednesday, September 20, we were honored to have Cott Beverages' representatives Sam Taylor and Rhonda Rata, and Ms. Molly Burgess, executive director of the Manufacturers' Council of the Inland Empire (MCIE) join the Mayor and City Council in proclaiming October 6 as Manufacturing Day.

National Manufacturing Day? is a nationwide celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. In San Bernardino, the manufacturing industry is a vital contributor to the economy with over 170 manufacturing organizations in the city that employ more than 3,400 people. Innovative manufacturers that call San Bernardino home range from internationally known brands such as Mars Petcare US and animatronics leader Garner Holt Productions, to nationally known products such as dairy producer Farmdale Creamery and carbonated drink maker Cott Beverages. Cott is one of the world's largest producers of beverages on behalf of retailers, brand owners and distributors and their San Bernardino plant employs over 140 people.

We salute all manufacturers in San Bernardino and thank them for bringing quality jobs to the city.
