Sheboygan County named a top place where US manufacturing is thriving
Advisor Smith - Manufacturing has served an important role in the United States economy, and the industry continues to play a critical role today. From industrial products to consumer goods, and from automobiles to aircraft, the U.S. manufacturing sector is diverse and continues to develop and evolve. In this deep dive into manufacturing-centric areas in the U.S., we examined the question: where are the top cities in the United States where manufacturing is thriving?
AdvisorSmith conducted a study on 318 U.S. cities to determine the top cities where U.S. manufacturing is thriving. We based our rankings on four key economic factors: manufacturing output growth rate, manufacturing output per capita, manufacturing location quotient, and manufacturing employment growth rate.
Top cities where manufacturing is thriving:
1.  Elkhart, IN
2.  Columbus, IN
3.  Rocky Mount, NC
4.  Kokomo, IN
5.  Sheboygan, WI
6.  San Jose, CA
7.  Reno, NV
8.  Lake Charles, LA
