Manufacturing Sector
NAICS Sectors 31-33

The Manufacturing industry decreased its employment level by 747 workers (2.0 percent) from 2009 to 2010 for an average of 36,960 workers in 2010. The number of establishments decreased as well, with 14 establishments lost for a total of 1,142 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, 10 of the 21 industries showed a net loss in the number of workers. The Miscellaneous Manufacturing (NAICS 339) sector was impacted the most with a loss of 352 workers or 7.0 percent. Most of this loss was located in the Other Miscellaneous Manufacturing subsector. The following industries also showed significant worker losses:

  • Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing (NAICS 334): 298 workers (12.2 percent)
  • Furniture and Related Product Manufacturing (NAICS 337): 218 workers (10.2 percent)
  • Wood Product Manufacturing (NAICS 321): 86 workers (4.4 percent)
  • Chemical Manufacturing (NAICS 325): 66 workers (5.8 percent)
  • Paper Manufacturing (NAICS 322): 47 workers (6.2 percent)
  • Print and Related Support Activities (NAICS 323): 37 workers (2.7 percent)
  • Equipment, Appliance, and Component Manufacturing (NAICS 335): 24 workers (6.1 percent)
  • Primary Metal Manufacturing (NAICS 331): 10 workers (2.0 percent)
  • Leather and Allied Product Manufacturing (NAICS 316): 2 workers (15.4 percent)

Despite overall loss in workers for this industry, nine of the 21 manufacturing industry sectors experienced increased worker levels. Worker growth mainly occurred within these subsectors:

  • Machinery Manufacturing sector (NAICS 333): 143 workers or 2.7 percent
  • Food Manufacturing (NAICS 311): 99 workers or 1.3 percent
  • Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing (NAICS 332): 82 workers or 2.4 percent)
  • Apparel Manufacturing (NAICS 315): 11 workers or 7.7 percent

Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing (NAICS 324) remained stable with 17 workers in 2010.

The 2010 annual pay for the Manufacturing sector was $39,899, an increase of 4.1 percent compared to the 2009 level of $38,313. The Manufacturing sector also saw an increase in annual pay within several subsectors, with the following industries having the highest percentage increases:

  • Textile Product Mills (NAICS 314): $4,794 or 15.6 percent
  • Primary Metal Manufacturing (NAICS 331): $3,386 or 8.7 percent
  • Machinery Manufacturing (NAICS 333): $3,263 or 8.5 percent
  • Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing (NAICS 332): $3,043 or 8.1 percent
  • Transportation Equipment Manufacturing (NAICS 336): $2,092 or 5.4 percent
  • Wood Product Manufacturing (NAICS 321): $2,072 or 5.6 percent
  • Plastic and Rubber Products Manufacturing (NAICS 326): $2,059 or 5.9 percent
  • Furniture and Related Product Manufacturing (NAICS 337): $1,909 or 6.3 percent
  • Chemical Manufacturing (NAICS 325): $1,751 or 3.3 percent
  • Paper Manufacturing (NAICS 322): $1,358 or 3.0 percent
  • Food Manufacturing (NAICS 311): $1,326 or 3.7 percent
  • Mineral Product Manufacturing (NAICS 327): $1,146 or 2.6 percent

Although the majority of the Manufacturing sectors had an increase in annual pay, there were four sectors that had decreases in annual pay:

  • Electrical Equipment, Appliance and Component Manufacturing (NAICS 335): $3,338 or 7.8 percent
  • Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing (NAICS 334): 5.4 percent or $2,231
  • Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing (NAICS 324): $1,542 or 4.5 percent
  • Tobacco Product Manufacturing (NAICS 312): 3.9 percent or $1,319

Overall, the Manufacturing sector had a decrease in the number of workers. The loss in 2010 was only 747 workers, which is greatly improved from a loss of 4,988 workers in 2009. The recession greatly impacted the Manufacturing industry via reduced hours, temporary layoffs, permanent layoffs and an elimination of seasonal workers. However, the 2010 data shows that the Manufacturing industry is starting to recover from the recession.
