Manufacturing Sector
NAICS Sectors 31-33

In 2011, the Manufacturing industry increased its employment level by 2,363 workers (6.4 percent) for an average of 39,204 workers. The number of establishments decreased by 12 for a total of 1,125 statewide. This industry sector is comprised of both durable and non-durable goods manufacturing. Establishments included in Durable Goods Manufacturing are engaged in manufacturing goods with a normal life expectancy of three or more years. These items typically consist of higher dollar products, such as machinery, furniture, building materials and electronic equipment. Non-durable goods typically consist of food and beverage products, clothing and paper products.

The Manufacturing industry was greatly impacted by the recession and had a large number of layoffs in 2009. In 2010, almost half of the industries had worker losses. In 2011, 17 of the 21 industries showed a gain in the number of workers, showing recovery from the recession. The following industries showed significant worker gains:

  • Machinery Manufacturing (NAICS 333): 754 workers (13.9 percent)
  • Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing (NAICS 332): 320 workers (9.4 percent)
  • Transportation Equipment Manufacturing (NAICS 336): 297 workers (13.6 percent)
  • Food Manufacturing (NAICS 311): 286 workers (3.7 percent)
  • Plastics and Rubber Products Manufacturing (NAICS 326): 138 workers (11.1 percent)
  • Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing (NAICS 334): 121 workers (5.6 percent)
  • Wood Product Manufacturing (NAICS 321): 109 workers (5.8 percent)
  • Furniture and Related Product Manufacturing (NAICS 337): 84 workers (4.4 percent)
  • Primary Metal Manufacturing (NAICS 331): 70 workers (14.6 percent)
  • Miscellaneous Manufacturing (NAICS 339): 65 workers (1.4 percent)
  • Nonmetallic Mineral Product Manufacturing (NAICS 327): 39 workers (2.6 percent)
  • Apparel Manufacturing (NAICS 315): 37 workers (24.2 percent)

Despite overall gain in workers for this industry, three of the 21 Manufacturing industry sectors experienced decreased worker levels. Worker loss occurred mainly within the sectors of Textile Product Mills (NAICS 314) with 10 workers (2.4 percent) and Printing and Related Support Activities (NAICS 323) with seven workers (0.5 percent).

The 2011 annual pay for the Manufacturing sector was $41,474, an increase of 4.1 percent compared to the 2010 level of $39,838, with 17 of the 21 sectors increasing annual pay. The following industries had significant increases in their annual pay:

  • Machinery Manufacturing (NAICS 333): $5,812 (14.1 percent)
  • Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing (NAICS 324): $4,751 (13.2)
  • Mineral Product Manufacturing (NAICS 327): $3,352 (7.5 percent)
  • Chemical Manufacturing (NAICS 325): $3,231 (6.0 percent)
  • Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing (NAICS 334): $2,875 (7.4 percent)
  • Apparel Manufacturing (NAICS 315): $2,769 (10.8 percent)
  • Beverage and Tobacco Product Manufacturing (NAICS 312): $1,698 (5.2 percent)
  • Electrical Equipment, Appliance and Component Manufacturing (NAICS 335): $1,603 (4.1 percent)
  • Plastic and Rubber Products Manufacturing (NAICS 326): $912 (2.4 percent)
  • Food Manufacturing (NAICS 311): $910 (2.4 percent)
  • Primary Metal Manufacturing (NAICS 331): $759 (1.8 percent)
  • Miscellaneous Manufacturing (NAICS 339): $444 (1.0 percent)
  • Wood Product Manufacturing (NAICS 321): $414 (1.1 percent)

Overall, the Manufacturing sector had a large increase in the number of workers from 2010 to 2011. The recession greatly impacted this industry, with a reduction in hours, temporary layoffs, permanent layoffs and an elimination of some seasonal workers all playing a part in large worker decreases during 2009. The 2010 data showed the manufacturing industry was starting to recover from the recession, and 2011 showed even stronger signs of recession recovery.
