Manufacturing is booming
Did you know that our region's manufacturing sector has experienced the highest percentage increase in employment in the Cincinnati MSA for the period of Q1 2011 - Q1 2012? And, according to Brookings Institute, the Cincinnati MSA:
- Is ranked in the top 20 for total manufacturing employment of the top 100 metros
- Grew manufacturing employment at a rate twice the national average for the sector during 2010-2011.
Manufacturing is one of the region’s growing clusters that the Partnership, the economic development arm of the Chamber, is focusing on in relation to growing and attracting business to our area. With this sector playing such an important role to our region's growth, we wanted to make sure you are aware of the 6th Annual MANNY Awards coming up June 5. These awards will feature a mini panel discussion around the history and future horizon of manufacturing in the Tristate.
