The importance of local manufacturing to the Bay Area’s economy and to our physical safety has become increasingly clear this year.
In addition to ensuring that we have the essential products we need to survive, our local manufacturers have set a shining example of creative problem-solving: retooling to offer new products; displaying deep caring for their employees; modeling responsibility to the greater community through donations and volunteering; and, above all, leading with vision and heart.
Join SFMade, MFG:SJ, the Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Initiative, and our 30+ partner cities and counties in paying tribute to the work that manufacturers do every day to create a safe and robust Bay Area during 2020 Bay Area Manufacturing Week.
