SPRINGFIELD – Illinois manufacturers will now be honored in the state of Illinois this October, thanks to the help of State Senator Scott Bennett.

Bennett (D-Champaign) championed a measure that declares October Manufacturing Month in Illinois.

“Illinois manufacturers play a significant role in empowering our communities throughout the state and deserve praise for their efforts,” Bennett said. “Our manufacturing industry workers have worked overtime throughout the pandemic producing medical supplies to keep our communities safe from COVID-19, and I am proud of their hard work.”

Recognizing Manufacturing Month in Illinois will bring much-needed awareness to challenges the industry faces by encouraging manufacturers and organizations to address current shortcomings and prepare for its development.

“While this month is designated to celebrate the contributions of manufacturers around the state, their dedication and hard work deserves appreciation year round,” Bennett said. “I urge residents to say thank you to our manufacturers.”

Bennett served as chief cosponsor of Senate Resolution 581. The resolution was adopted with bipartisan support in the Senate on Thursday.
