MICHIGAN GAINS MANUFACTURING JOBS FOR A FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR

Manufacturers' News, Inc.
EVANSTON, Ill, May 11th, 2015

According to data collected by
MNI, Michigan manufacturers added 14,089 jobs from February 2014 to February 2015, an increase of 2.1%, running ahead of the 1.7% national average increase reported by the Labor Department for the same time period.

Manufacturers’ News reports
Michigan is now home to 13,915 manufacturers employing 675,400 workers. Industrial employment in Michigan has climbed 8.3% since February of 2011, recovering 40% of jobs lost during the recession, and overtaking the nation’s 5.8% rate of growth over this 4-year time frame.

Michigan’s industrial base has achieved a remarkable turnaround following the recession’s steep losses, particularly in the all-important auto sector,” says Tom Dubin, President of the Evanston, IL-based publishing company, which has been surveying industry since 1912. “The Big Three continue to expand in the state and investment programs such as the Michigan Strategic Fund have helped fuel start-ups and innovation. Tesla’s announcement last week that it will establish a manufacturing presence in Michigan is a definite boon to the state.”

According to Manufacturers’ News, employment gains were led by the transportation equipment sector, which climbed 2.4% over the year, and 8% over the past four years, ranking first in the state for industrial employment with 133,278 jobs. Over the survey period, Ford, GM and Toyota announced plans to expand facilities across the state, and suppliers such as Denso Manufacturing
Michigan, Challenge Mfg, Android Industries, and Magna International have also announced expansions.

The state’s second and third top sectors by employment also posted gains, with second-ranked industrial machinery up 3.4% and third-ranked fabricated metals up 3%.Gains were reported across most other industrial sectors in
Michigan, with employment in rubber/plastics up 6.8%; textiles up 2.3%; paper products also up 2.3%; and food products up 1.7%.

Only two sectors posted significant losses, reports
MNI. Employment fell in printing/publishing by 3.8% and declined 2.4% in furniture/fixtures.

Industrial locations announcing closures include an Automotive Components Holdings plant in Plymouth Township; a Liquid Manufacturing, LLC facility in Brighton; Caraco Pharmaceutical in Detroit and Inalfa Roof Systems in Grand Blanc Township.


According to the database of manufacturers, industrial employment in Southeast
Michigan climbed 2.2% over the year, with the region currently home to 390,861 workers. Southwest Michigan posted a 2.1% increase amd currently accounts for 215,427 of the state’s industrial jobs. Jobs were up 3.1% in Northwest Michigan, currently numbering 33,829, and rose a half percent in Northeast Michigan, which numbers 19,836. The Upper Peninsula is home to 15,447 industrial workers, up 1%.

Grand Rapids posted a 4.7% manufacturing employment increase, and ranks first for number of workers, with 45,669 jobs, says
MNI. Detroit suburbs continue to see an uptick in jobs, with employment in fifth-ranked Warren up 8.9%; up 3.5% in third-ranked Auburn Hills, and up 2.2% in Sterling Heights, which ranks fourth in the state.
