What to Expect from the Industrial Textile Industry in 2018

The industrial textiles industry is key to the manufacturing sector, and our Mauritzon team is proud to be at the forefront of the industry. Over three centuries, with family ownership spanning five generations, our company has manufactured and distributed quality wholesale industrial products across the nation. What can we do for you? Read on to learn more about Mauritzon and the upcoming 2018 textile forecast.

The Last of 2017

Part of planning for 2018 involves revisiting what went right in 2017. With positives like October’s National Manufacturing Day initiative, business across the industry work hard to inspire the next generation of skilled workers.

Product catalogs are also a great way to spread knowledge about a company’s products and capabilities. Our latest product catalog covered our industrial fabrics, awning and marine fabrics, tarpaulins, welding blankets and screens, divider curtains, and athletic covers and dividers.

2018 Predictions for Industrial Textiles

Expectations for the U.S. industrial textile industry are high and we hope to see even further advancements and successes throughout 2018. Industrial textiles have become a more important part of the textile and apparel manufacturing sector over the past few years, and this is not forecast to change.

The wholesale industrial fabrics and textile products we distribute appeal to diverse markets, from automotive and marine to sports and recreational. As the U.S. boating industry continues to unveil innovations and experience growing recreational boat sales, the demand for reliable marine fabrics will grow too. As always, the sports industry remains strong, driven at least in part by an increasing safety-conscious American population. In turn, products such as athletic covers for gyms, martial arts, and soccer fields will be highly sought-after.

Mauritzon textiles are constructed with heavy-duty materials to withstand the toughest elements and environments. Safety will continue to be at the forefront of our minds in everything we craft and distribute in 2018 and beyond, along with ensuring we consistently provide superior service and materials to our customers.

As the New Year Rolls In

The Mauritzon team looks forward to another productive year in the books.

We hope that your New Year is filled with joy and good health!

Recognizing National Manufacturing Day Friday, October 6th

National Manufacturing Day and Its Initiatives

There are few initiatives that have impacted the course of manufacturing and production in the United States like the National Manufacturing Day (NMD).

Started in 2012 to give the public a glimpse of modern manufacturing and to inspire the next generation of skilled workers, NMD has grown in scope and popularity with each subsequent iteration.

It is expected that in 2017 more than 600,000 individuals and companies will come together to celebrate the National Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 6th.

What breakthroughs will businesses achieve in terms of how the public views manufacturing and its contributions to the economy? How will the perception of students change and will they embrace S.T.E.M careers in hopes of a strong and stable future career path?

NMD may be officially designated as the first Friday of every October, but it influences the strategic decisions taken by the workers of tomorrow throughout the year and beyond.

The Impact of the Day

Over the last half decade, NMD initiatives have had a profound positive effect. 89% of people believe that they are now more aware of the myriad manufacturing opportunities available in their community. 84% of students are more convinced that manufacturing can provide them with stable, well-paying careers and benefits, and 64% are motivated to pursue them.

Many manufacturing companies industry-wide host “plant tours” in which they open their facility to potential employees offering them a sneak peek into the economy -boosting, exciting work that manufacturing entails. Some also organize workshops to focus on Skill Gap and its remedies. Others join forces with their peers and hold symposiums where breakthroughs in manufacturing are presented to their audience and the world.

So far, this year, 2,000+ events have already been registered and more are being published every day.

Mauritzon Celebrates National Manufacturing Day October 7

nmd-image-sept-2016Every October, companies across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada celebrate National Manufacturing Day. The day was created in part by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International®, the National Association of Manufacturers, the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and the Manufacturing Institute. It is a day meant to focus on the challenges that many companies in the industry face, such as addressing misconceptions of what manufacturing really means.

Companies are invited to open their doors to the public and to STEM students to give them a better understanding of the manufacturing world. It is also a day to support communities and to encourage future generations to enter the manufacturing industry, which is ample with solid work opportunities. The idea is that if people are able to first hand experience the manufacturing workplace, they will better understand what manufacturing is and how it can better impact their lives and communities.

By banding together, companies can address issues that face the industry, such as a shortage of skilled labor, a misrepresented image of manufacturing, and how to connect with future generations to increase interest. Although the day is scheduled for October 7 this year, companies can always register their events for any time of year on the website.
