Who Do You Want to Honor?

The Manufacturing Ledger offers people a truly unique platform for sharing their story or recognizing a family member, friend, employer, colleague, educator, or mentor when a contribution is made to the American Precision Museum.

Honoring People and Progress of Manufacturing

The Manufacturing Ledger is a new fundraising initiative and digital exhibit at the American Precision Museum designed as a permanent record of machine tool and manufacturing industry leaders, award winners and individuals who have contributed to their industry and in doing so to the betterment of society. The stories we are recording include those of manufacturers, machine tool builders, machine tool distributors, educators and industry advocates.

Each person recognized will have a dedicated page that includes their profile picture, career history, industry awards earned, and pictures that help document their career in manufacturing. In addition, there is an opportunity to contribute a quote that shares what inspired them to follow a career in manufacturing to help inspire the next generation of innovators.
