As the exclusive state affiliate for the National Association of Manufacturers, the NC Chamber is proud to celebrate our state’s leading employer industry and one of its most important engines for technology development and innovation in our state. Next Friday, Oct. 2, manufacturers across the country, including dozens in North Carolina, will participate in Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) by opening their doors to their local communities and students. Additional events will continue to be held throughout the month of October.

NC Chamber member Pine Hall Brick Company, Inc. is just one of the many North Carolina manufacturers with plans to join in the October celebrations for MFG Day. Companies like Pine Hall Brick work every day to reinforce the foundations of our national and state economies; Pine Hall Brick’s products, in their own words, “…have been used to build the homes, schools and public plazas where generations of Americans live, work and play.”

On Friday, Oct. 2 from 9 a.m.-12 noon, the company will host tours at their Paver Plant location at 350 Teague Road in Madison, NC, which is located in Rockingham County. The plant will continue to run throughout the tours. Look for signs directing visitors where to park upon arrival. NO RSVP is necessary.
