National Manufacturing Day was an observance Friday in factories across the country, but in Oklahoma City it was more of an actual celebration.
It wasn't just the green, white and black balloons, the snacks, brunch items and fine coffees, and the tour groups donning bright green hard hats and goggles for the occasion at Malarkey Roofing Products.
It was the state statistics, not to mention Malarkey's own success story.
