Manufacturing Jobs Up in Houston

by | Feb 4, 2008 | Community Circle

Good news for the manufacturing industry in Houston. You outpace the rest of the state and country in job growth. I recently read a report in the Houston Business Journal that details the growth of the industry in Houston.

Several large manufacturers have moved into Houston because of tax abatements, manufacturing sales tax exemptions and tax increment reinvestment zones. Houston as the center of the U.S. energy industry has certainly helped this growth. 

Last Monday, I mentioned that Houston is ranked #1 in job growth by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and given this report, it’s not hard to see why.
