Manufacturing & Distribution

Manufacturing

Careers in manufacturing pay up to 30% more than other industries, offering an extremely high ceiling for advancement.

ecent information from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the manufacturing industry began adding jobs in 2010, as the economy began recovering from the effects of the recession. But the nature of some of these jobs has changed, with fewer jobs on an assembly line and more jobs running computers or machines. Combine modern technology-focused jobs, reshoring of manufacturing jobs back to the U.S., and a retiring workforce, the skills gap for manufacturing continues to widen.
s manufacturing innovation continues to improve, the need for STEM-based learning (Science Technology Engineering Math) is even more critical. Some examples of growing occupations include Industrial engineers and mechanical engineers. These were among the highest paying occupations in manufacturing in May 2013. Median annual wages for these workers in manufacturing were $78,690 and $77,830, respectively—more than double the $35,080 median wage for all workers. In addition to having significant current employment, machinists are projected to add about 18,500 jobs in manufacturing between 2012 and 2022.
t a local level, according to recent data from the National Association of Manufacturers, manufacturers in Florida account for 5.0 percent of the total output in the state, employing 4.2 percent of the workforce. Marion County has one of the highest manufacturing sectors in the state, making up nearly 8% of our local civilian labor force (more than 10,000 employees).
