New Hampshire’s Manufacturing Month Celebrates Key Sector, Economic Driver

Manufacturing Month kicked off at NextPhase Medical Devices in Rochester.

New Hampshire’s celebration of  Manufacturing Month continues through October. Since manufacturing employs nearly 70,000 people in all corners of the state, accounts for over 12 percent of our gross state product, and is a key driver of our economy, it is appropriate to cheer our manufacturers and the very cool things they make here.


Tune into this month’s New Hampshire Business Matters for a look at manufacturing in the Granite State.

Manufacturing Month kicked off at Next Phase Medical Devices in Rochester and will conclude Nov. 2 with the 16th annual Governor’s Advanced Manufacturing and High Technology Summit (register here). Through the month, dozens of manufacturers are opening their doors to high school students, to show them what’s inside, what’s being made, what it is used for and the technology it takes to make the products.

On this month’s New Hampshire Business Matters radio show, our director, Will Arvelo, and guest Zenaugi Brahim, president of the New Hampshire Manufacturing Extension Partnership, talked about all things manufacturing in the state – where the sector is, where it’s going and nurturing the pipeline of workers needed by manufacturers to continue growing and being competitive.
