Manufacturing Week Highlights State's Largest Industry

Monday, October 02, 2017

To highlight the importance of manufacturing, Governor Mark Dayton today issued a proclamation declaring the week of October 1-7, 2017 to be Minnesota Manufacturing Week.

Manufacturing is the state’s largest industry by gross domestic product (GDP). It supports 318,000 Minnesota jobs, while contributing $48.2 billion to the state’s economy. This output represents 16 percent of Minnesota’s private gross domestic product. Manufacturing accounted for about $18 billion in state exports in 2016.

Minnesota Manufacturing Week acknowledges and honors the important role manufacturers and their workers play in state’s economy. Plant tours of manufacturing facilities around the state, speakers, and educational activities are planned for this week and throughout the month.
