While the last few years – decades even – have seen manufacturing move away from America and toward Asia, that trend may be changing. This doesn’t necessarily indicate a complete transformation but there do seem to be additional manufacturing workers in the United States today.
Arizona is a fantastic illustration of this. International companies in the area currently have close to 110,000 locals on their books. Out of that, 24,300 work in the manufacturing industry which accounts for 22 percent of all globally-created jobs in the region. This trend has been increasing over the last 5 years as data has shown that there has been a 35 percent increase since 2014 in the number of internationally-created jobs in Arizona.
This trend seems to not be confined to Arizona. According to recent government data over 62 percent of new US manufacturing jobs were created in the last five years. Some examples of these firms are: Anheuser-Busch, BP and DHL.
Ohio is developing a similar reputation. over 13,000 locals are employed by Honda’s local manufacturing facilities. Honda is doing amazing things for the local economy with its $10bn annual expenditure in the region.
And then there are the large automakers which manufacture cars in America, specifically Acura, BMW, Honda, Subaru and Toyota. in addition, Ohio-based gas motorcycle manufacturer Cleveland Cyclewerks, recently announced its entry into the electric motorcycle industry following its production of gas-powered motor vehicles through domestic (and overseas) assembling, manufacturing.
