Local Manufacturing Industry Celebrated First Week of October

Friday, October 1 is National Manufacturing Day, a day to honor and celebrate manufacturing across the USA.

For many years, the Surry Economic Development Partnership has participated in Manufacturing Day and celebrated our local industry during the first full week of October. 

Manufacturing is very important to the people of North Carolina and Surry County – providing meaningful careers for many people and producing goods that we all purchase and use. There are over 110 manufacturing companies in Surry County, providing jobs to over 4,000 people. Over 14 percent of our workforce is employed in the manufacturing sector. Join us this week, each day, as we highlight local manufacturers in Surry County!
