Hochul: NY Experiencing Manufacturing Renaissance


Is manufacturing on the rise in the Empire State? Some certainly think so.

According to data released by New York, the state has added 13,379 manufacturing jobs since 2021.

Governor Hochul is touting this data as a renaissance for manufacturing.

“New York’s manufacturing sector is in the midst of a major renaissance, and we’ve got the jobs, the businesses, and the investment to prove it,” Governor Hochul said. “After decades of decline across the manufacturing industry, my administration is turning the sector around with historic actions to bring leading businesses to our state, encourage green and sustainable business practices, and prepare the workforce for the manufacturing jobs of tomorrow. Manufacturing is at the core of our state’s history and identity, and this Manufacturing Month, I am reaffirming my commitment to building up this sector to attract the best businesses and provide good-paying, middle class jobs in New York State.”

Roughly 420,000 New Yorkers work in manufacturing, a sector that contributes over 83 billion to the state’s GDP.

Hochul also declared October as Manufacturing Month in New York State.
