Building the Texas of Tomorrow: Advanced Manufacturing & Distribution | Wednesday, Nov. 15 | Baylor Club

Building on the success of last year’s Infrastructure Summit, the Greater Waco Chamber will again bring leaders together to explore another important topic critical to the region’s continued economic growth and prosperity. This year’s deep dive will examine advanced manufacturing and distribution. Manufacturing constitutes 14% of Greater Waco’s economy, which far exceeds the average for communities throughout our country and state. Manufacturing generates the greatest economic impact of all economic sectors, not only making Texas the No. 1 state for exports but also a driving force in the innovation economy through R&D activities. For each manufacturing job created, an additional 5 jobs are generated into the economy. Greater Waco is a community of builders.

We will look at the region’s manufacturing and distribution economy, explore national and state trends with a forward outlook of the industry, understand the unique workforce skills and training needs of this sector, and inform the region’s economic development efforts dedicated to helping our existing manufacturing and distribution companies grow, as well as attracting new investments into our community.
