With good reason, New York has consistently been listed as one of the top states to watch in the manufacturing resurgence that is sweeping the nation. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, New York was responsible for $67.91 billion of the nation’s $2079.52 billion in total manufacturing output for 2013. Additionally, New York is ranked third among all the states in the country – after Texas and California – for manufactured goods exports with $68.65 billion in exports during 2013.
There are many opportunities, resources and economic programs that make New York a manufacturing-friendly state, including NYSTAR’s Regional Technology Development Center (RTDC) network that is affiliated with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) system.
