Manufacturing – making products and adding value to raw materials – is a foundation of Maine’s heritage and continues to play a crucial role in state’s economic well-being.

Maine is an excellent location for manufacturing with available shipping (truck, rail, and ship) to move raw materials into Maine, as well as export finished goods. While emerging companies tend to be smaller and use high-tech precision production, the manufacturing sector in Maine remains strong, continuing to evolve and innovate.
