All About WWMM
Under the banner Woodworking Manufacturing: Innovation Starts Here, Woodworking Manufacturing Month will celebrate woodworking industry vitality on two parallel tracks: A national awareness and outreach campaign operating in tandem with local grassroots programming initiated by participating manufacturers.
Local efforts will involve businesses across the U.S. in a collective demonstration of woodworking as a source of innovation in production technology and materials development, and as a center for applying those advances to the development and production of innovative products used across a host of market segments, including building and construction, industrial infrastructure, consumer goods, and many other markets. Local participants will benefit from a full turn-key marketing and branding resource toolkit providing ready-to-deploy digital vehicles, program logos and graphics, a digital directory/resource guide and other essential material. Equipped with these tools, participating businesses can choose to stage self-directed local events and promotions such as open houses, factory site visits and product innovation discovery days.
Beyond elevating industry visibility and championing the role of innovation as a growth engine, Woodworking Manufacturing Month aims to position the woodworking industry as a career destination. The industry embraces hundreds of woodworking suppliers, including developers of design systems, manufacturers of equipment and related technology, suppliers of lumber, panel, hardware, fasteners, coatings, and adhesives.
