"Made in City of Industry" Manufacturing Initiative Launched

The Industry Business Council (IBC) has launched a manufacturing initiative called "Made in City of Industry." The manufacturing initiative sets out to support existing manufacturers in the city and attract new manufacturers looking to expand their business operations to the West Coast.

"The City of Industry has been a central hub for manufacturing in the San Gabriel Valley for decades. With the launch of the 'Made in City of Industry' initiative, the IBC and the City are renewing their commitment to the manufacturing industry," said Joanne McClaskey, Executive Director of the IBC. "We will be focusing on the issues impacting manufacturers, responding to their needs, delivering ongoing improvements and actively attracting more manufacturers to the city to create a wide range of entry-level and professional jobs."

The IBC has assembled a top-notch team of experts to create a detailed plan including specific deliverables, target dates and success criteria. The initiative will produce an in-depth study of the city's top seven industries to identify growth and future expansion trends, including data on current geographical areas where these industries are predominantly located. The study will utilize scientific research to identify the existing competitive advantages of the city as well as the areas where additional focus is needed.

Unique workforce development programs will be designed to help support the ongoing needs of the manufacturing sector. The plan includes in-depth studies regarding the demographics of potential employees and removing barriers to make a lasting and mutually beneficial connection. Training programs will provide the necessary skills and prepare potential employees to develop career paths beyond entry-level opportunities.

The team will also be exploring supply chain connections between local manufacturing sectors in order to help streamline the production and distribution of locally manufactured products. Other efficiency benefits, including waste and emissions, will be considered in the plan.

With 213 manufacturers in the city, the IBC and City of Industry will be implementing projects through the "Made in City of Industry" initiative to stimulate the expansion of the manufacturing industry. The city's top manufacturers include the following industries: food processing, equipment manufacturing, packaging, metals, aerospace, lighting and plastics. City of Industry manufacturers continue to boost local and regional economies by employing over 17,000 people, representing over 25% of the total employment in the city.
