Florida's Manufacturing Companies in Numbers

The Florida Scorecard on Manufacturing 

Florida’s little-recognized manufacturing industry has a significant impact on the state’s $800 billion economy, contributing $1 out of every $20. A report released last summer by the Florida Chamber Foundation puts the spotlight on manufacturing’s contribution to the state while warning that, “A healthy, robust and growing manufacturing sector is a key component to growing Florida’s position as a global hub. As larger ships consider where to dock, our ability to fill those ships will be one of the fundamental considerations to whether those ships dock in one of Florida’s 15 seaports or somewhere else on the Atlantic seaboard.”
