Manufacturing Sector
NAICS Sectors 31-33

In 2012, the Manufacturing industry increased employment by 1,971 workers (5.0 percent) for an average of 41,175 workers. The number of establishments decreased, down by 13 for a total of 1,112 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.

In 2012, 16 of the 21 industries showed a gain in the number of workers, showing a recovery from the recession. The following industries showed worker gains:

  • Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing (NAICS 332): 517 workers (13.9 percent)
  • Food Manufacturing (NAICS 311): 418 workers (5.2 percent)
  • Machinery Manufacturing (NAICS 333): 289 workers (4.7 percent)
  • Transportation Equipment Manufacturing (NAICS 336): 271 workers (10.9 percent)
  • Furniture and Related Product Manufacturing (NAICS 337): 92 workers (4.6 percent)
  • Primary Metal Manufacturing (NAICS 331): 88 workers (16.0 percent)
  • Wood Product Manufacturing (NAICS 321): 69 workers (3.5 percent)
  • Plastics and Rubber Products Manufacturing (NAICS 326): 67 workers (4.9 percent)
  • Printing and Related Support Activities (NAICS 323): 61 workers (4.5 percent)
  • Electrical Equipment, Appliance and Component Manufacturing (NAICS 335): 44 workers (11.7 percent)
  • Chemical Manufacturing (NAICS 325): 43 workers (4.0 percent)
  • Paper Manufacturing (NAICS 322): 38 workers (5.3 percent)
  • Apparel Manufacturing (NAICS 315): 26 workers (13.7 percent)
  • Beverage and Tobacco Product Manufacturing (NAICS 312): 9 workers (3.3 percent)
  • Miscellaneous Manufacturing (NAICS 339): 6 workers (0.1 percent)
  • Leather and Allied Product Manufacturing (NAICS 316): 2 workers (20.0 percent)

Despite overall gain in workers for this industry, four of the 21 manufacturing industry sectors experienced decreased worker levels. Worker loss occurred within the sectors:

  • Nonmetallic Mineral Product Manufacturing (NAICS 327) with 27 workers (1.8 percent)
  • Textile Product Mills (NAICS 314) with 23 workers (5.8 percent)
  • Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing (NAICS 334) with 13 workers (0.6 percent)
  • Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing (NAICS 324) with four workers (33.3 percent)

The 2012 annual pay for the manufacturing sector was $42,176, an increase of 1.7 percent compared to the 2011 level of $41,474. The 18 subsectors listed below had increases in their annual pay:

  • Chemical Manufacturing (NAICS 325): $9,842 (17.2 percent)
  • Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing (NAICS 324): $8,734 (21.4 percent)
  • Transportation Equipment Manufacturing (NAICS 336): $3,441 (8.5 percent)
  • Textile Mills (NAICS 313): $2,208 (8.5 percent)
  • Miscellaneous Manufacturing (NAICS 339): $1,841 (4.3 percent)
  • Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing (NAICS 332): $1,352 (3.3 percent)
  • Furniture and Related Product Manufacturing (NAICS 337): $1,321 (4.1 percent)
  • Mineral Product Manufacturing (NAICS 327): $1,261 (2.6 percent)
  • Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing (NAICS 334): $1,228 (2.9 percent)
  • Paper Manufacturing (NAICS 322): $969 (2.1 percent)

  • Primary Metal Manufacturing (NAICS 331): $435 (1.0 percent)
  • Printing and Related Support Activities (NAICS 323): $376 (1.0 percent)
  • Wood Product Manufacturing (NAICS 321): $185 (0.5 percent)
  • Plastics and Rubber Products Manufacturing (NAICS 326): $177 (0.5 percent)

The majority of the manufacturing subsectors had an increase in annual salary. However, there were three sectors that had a significant decrease in annual pay:

  • Machinery Manufacturing (NAICS 333) lost $2,912 or 6.2 percent.
  • Electrical Equipment, Appliance and Component Manufacturing (NAICS 335) decreased by 1.5 percent or $610.
  • Leather and Allied Product Manufacturing (NAICS 316) lost $157 or 1.2 percent.

Overall, the manufacturing sector had a large increase in the number of workers from 2011 to 2012, as well as an annual increase in annual pay. Although the recession greatly impacted the manufacturing industry in 2009, the 2010 and 2011 data showed the manufacturing industry recovering from the recession, and 2012 data showed strong growth.
