Thanks in part to its pro-business policies, strong workforce, and trade infrastructure, Florida ranks among the nation’s top 10 states for manufacturing. The state’s manufacturers produce a wide variety of goods including aerospace products, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, boats and more. Florida is home to over 19,000 manufacturers employing more than 371,000 workers.
Industry leaders from around the world have major operations in the Sunshine State, including GE, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Jabil, Embraer, Mitsubishi Power Americas, Northrop Grumman and Correct Craft. They form a long list of manufacturers taking advantage of the state’s multi-modal infrastructure system which allows them to move their products anywhere in the word, quickly.
Recently, companies like Accel International, Printech Circuit Laboratories, Brunswick Boating Group and Hoover Treated Wood Products have announced job creation projects across the state. “We are excited about our corporate expansion into Florida and anticipate a bright future for us and the city of Port St. Lucie. We hope bringing 125 new jobs by 2021 to Port St. Lucie during these difficult economic times will be a catalyst for other companies to do the same,” said Tim Cummings, CFO of Accel.
Consistently ranked one of the best states for business, Florida is committed to keeping regulatory requirements and business taxes low. That, along with a strong economy and zero personal state income tax, make it a great place to do business. These strong industry assets can help your manufacturing business ramp up fast in Florida.
