Houston Lags Among U.S. Counties in Manufacturing

Headlight Data released its annual rankings of the fastest-growing U.S. counties in manufacturing. Starting in 2011, the U.S. Manufacturing Industry has created jobs every year since then, a 6-year expansion that exceeds the 5-year expansion experienced 1994-1998. The manufacturing industry has created nearly 500,000 new jobs in the last 6 years, led by beverages (39%), transportation equipment (20%) and plastics & rubber products (12%).

In Texas, “Dallas County created 3,191 manufacturing jobs in 2016, according to Headlight Data. That ranked No. 3 in the U.S. for most jobs created,” the Dallas Business Journal reports. “And the county that lost the most? Harris County, home of Houston, which lost 19,000 manufacturing jobs.”
