More Than You Know Is "Made in Indiana"
Indiana manufacturers are producing everything from electric cars to high-fashion handbags, from turbines for the latest fighter jets to lifesaving medicines and orthopedic devices. We’re the most manufacturing-intensive state in the nation, ranking number one in per capita employment in the industry – and with a skilled incumbent workforce, top engineering and technical education programs, a central location and record levels of foreign direct investment, we aim to stay on top.
Indiana Manufacturing - High-Growth, High-Tech
- Indiana has more manufacturing jobs per capita than any other state – one of every five Hoosiers works in manufacturing.
- Indiana has ranked #1 in attracting international manufacturing jobs for two consecutive years.
- Central Indiana is a leader in engineering electric car and truck components – Hoosier manufacturers attracted more than a half billion dollars in federal stimulus funds for vehicle electrification in ’09.
- Indiana manufacturers produce more than half of the nation’s orthopedic medical devices.
A Climate for Growth
