Manufacturing in New Jersey is no longer just the smokestack industries we remember from years ago. Today, employers in manufacturing facilities also oversee the work of highly-skilled employees on computer automated machines that require attention to detail and the ability to solve complex problems.
Manufacturing is a $38 billion industry with jobs averaging $80,000 a year, higher than the wages paid to many employees in finance, insurance and real estate. NJBIA supports legislation that helps the manufacturing industry thrive. And thrive it does, as our Business Outlook Survey shows optimism for continued growth in durable and non-durable manufacturing.
Get information about critical issues related to State manufacturing policy, legislation and regulations. Updates on programs designed to train skilled workers is also provided on a regular basis. Visit our Manufacturing Resource page for more information specific to your industry.
