Manufacturing & Supply Chain Management

Summary/LMI:

With more than 550,000 jobs, New Jersey’s Manufacturing and Supply Chain Sector has long been a cornerstone of the state’s economy and history. At the center of the densely populated northeast corridor, New Jersey increasingly plays a critical role in the region’s and the nation’s supply chain.  The Manufacturing sector, with deep roots in our state, is expected to grow at modest levels in the years to come as employers increasingly need employees with mid-to-high technical and engineering skills.
