Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing brought $58.7 billion to Minnesota’s economy in 2022. The state expects more than 75,000 advanced manufacturing job openings through 2030.

Manufacturing is already a key industry in Minneapolis, and it is expected to grow. Companies that move to this area to expand their manufacturing footprint will have a large workforce to pull from. You can hire skilled workers with experience in logistics, industrial production, maintenance, and safety management.

There are several private, public, and government-based training programs to support the regional workforce. Local colleges and universities are tailoring programs to meet the needs of employers. The Minnesota Dual-Training Pipeline was designed as an earn-and-learn program to support on-the-job training. 

Your advanced manufacturing workforce is waiting for you.
