Michigan #1 in New Manufacturing Job Creation

Below is a report from the Michigan Economic Deveopment Corporation:


Michigan #1 in USA for creating new manufacturing jobs

America’s Comeback State leads the country in new manufacturing job creation at a net gain of 88,100 from December 2009 to March 2013, according to data by the National Association of Manufacturers. Michigan’s gain, 2.9 times the top 20 states' average, outpaced that of 2nd-place Texas by more than 50 percent.

“This embodies what Michigan is all about—we discover and make things better than anyone else,” said Michigan Economic Development Corporation President and CEO Michael A. Finney. “We have reinvented our business climate under Governor Snyder with swift and wide-ranging reforms, and these improvements are driving growth for manufacturers in diverse sectors like automotive, defense, food processing, furniture, medical devices and pharmaceuticals.”  
Local note: Many new manufacturing jobs have been created in Rogers City as part of the Port Calcite Collaborative initiative.  Go Michigan!  Go Rogers City!
