We’re excited to be included in the Nation of Makers October Newsletter!
As we celebrate National Manufacturing Day on October 6, 2017, Nation of Makers recognizes the many maker organizations that are working in the manufacturing community. Read below for just a sample of some of these organizations. Please note, this is in no way a comprehensive or fully representative list of the many maker organizations that contribute to the American manufacturing community.

Ranked #11 among the top 20 U.S. manufacturing companies by Inc. magazine, while still being inclusive and community-focused, Adafruit is a great example of maker to manufacturer in the U.S.
