Manufacturing careers typically offer continued opportunities for growth and development in constantly innovating sectors. They also often provide incredible benefits for those who perform them. Individuals who work in the industry consistently help support the economy as well as their local communities.

Here are some of our favorite reasons why we think manufacturing jobs are the best.

Supporting the Economy

According to a Deloitte study, approximately eighty percent of Americans believe that the manufacturing industry is critical to maintaining the country’s “economic prosperity, the standard of living, and national security.” These types of companies often provide the highest number of jobs and produce essential goods, encouraging the circulation of capital.

Gaining Niche Knowledge

Working in a manufacturing plant provides you with the opportunity to get an inside look into industries that others may not know much about. For example, staff members at API have a unique knowledge base related to rubber production and the creation of tires that most people use but are likely unfamiliar with how they are made.
