About Manufacturing Day:
Manufacturing Day is a national event, held on the first Friday in October, celebrating those who produce goods and services in America. The purpose of events held across the nation is to highlight the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders. The event is also an opportunity for manufacturers to come together to network and address collective challenges to help their businesses and communities thrive.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
