Michigan and Manufacturing
Manufacturing is historically a Michigan industry and it is here to stay, with plenty of opportunity and room to grow in the Lansing area. The thriving manufacturing industry is a major contributor to the economic comeback that Michigan continues to drive.
Careers in Manufacturing are a critical source of jobs for growing Michigan’s economy. If current employment trends continue, the gap is expected to grow between the increasing need for people with middle-skills and skilled-trade talent and the number of qualified prospects.
Local manufacturing companies can make a difference in the economy, but in order to achieve the goals of expansion, workforce opportunities must be exposed and people in our region need to be educated about the manufacturing industry.
Being able to fill the demand for manufacturing positions will ignite the Lansing economy turnaround, and we’ll continue to see decreasing unemployment numbers.
