Manufacturing Matters: Honoring Idaho’s Industrial Strength this October

By October 27, 2023No Comments

October is Manufacturing Month! 

Manufacturing Month is a special time for our manufacturing facility in Idaho; a month dedicated to recognizing the pivotal role manufacturing plays in our state’s economy and its future. 

Why Manufacturing Matters:

Manufacturing fuels the economy! According to Idaho Commerce, manufacturing is a significant contributor to the state’s economy, accounting for a substantial portion of Idaho’s GDP (approximately $9.7 billion). Additionally, manufacturers are estimated to employ approximately 6% of Idaho’s workforce.

But, the success of manufacturing is not just about machinery and technology; it’s about skilled workers. Developing and maintaining a skilled workforce is crucial for the industry’s growth. The Idaho Workforce Development Council is actively working on creating effective talent pipelines, ensuring that Idaho remains a hub for manufacturing excellence.
