Litania Sports Group Tour

To celebrate Manufacturing Day, Litania Sports Group will be hosting organized tours of their facility in Champaign on Mercury Drive.

Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturing Day occurs on the first Friday in October — this year Manufacturing Day is October 6, 2017.  MFG DAY addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t.
