For five consecutive years, the community of Cuba has honored and celebrated Manufacturing Day better than any other community in the State of Missouri. We are proud of our manufacturers, and we are honored to have their organizations be an active business partner to our community. Continuing with our tradition of excellence, this year, we stepped up our game. We have the greatest workforce in all of the midwestern United States, we are proud of what they do, and we are blessed by their work ethic. Without our workers and without our educators, there would be no Cuba, MO. We have a duty and a responsibility to say, “Thank you. Thank you for what you do. Every single day, grinding it out. Thank you.”
