Catalysts for Change

Project MFG has emerged as a collaborative effort with communities, educators and industry leaders to elevate the next generation of highly skilled trade professionals. Together, we promote the prestige of manufacturing, accelerate the manufacturing trade workforce training and education pipeline and collectively level up the broader manufacturing industrial base. 

The U.S. Department of Defense and the Industrial Base Analysis and Sustainment Program (IBAS) is the founding sponsor of the Project MFG skilled trades competition series that launched in Fall 2019.

Learn Why Sponsors Support Project MFG


“We’re trying to promote the trades to get students into it. Not only that – connect them with the industry. We’ve got industry looking for welders and we have training institutions teaching them. We just need to combine those and supply them with a student who is well-rounded, knowledgeable in welding and has the hands-on experience. “

“Project MFG is one of the ways to build workforce.”

Dan Klingman, Manager Educational Programming, Lincoln Electric
