Featuring an advanced manufacturing sector, Louisiana’s workforce provides a sizable advantage for investors and businesses alike. Meeting the needs of this growing industry with workforce development programs and higher education opportunities, Louisiana’s low-tax environment, incentives and abundant resources create a competitive advantage for business growth.
The wealth of resources abundant in Louisiana create opportunities across all manufacturing sectors, resulting in increased opportunities for custom precision machining for Oil & Gas and Aerospace & Defense projects. In December alone, Louisiana Economic Development reported interests and investments in natural gas facilities, a southern yellow pine lumber plant, blue methanol production plant, and more.
Located in an oil-rich area that derives 6.2% of its jobs from oil exploration, the business development in the Acadiana area has diversified over the years to impact recovery from economic downturns and weather-related incidents.
Adding opportunities in manufacturing and technology, the area has become one of the largest employment zones in the state that is supported by proven educational and skills training programs. An optimistic economic outlook marks the next two years to be a period of growth for the region, retaining jobs from COVID losses and stability in the construction and medical industries, including a new PPE manufacturing facility planned for the area.
Servicing companies with reliable access via land, air, and water, Louisiana’s growth in manufacturing jobs translate to an increased need for proven workmanship, especially for items needing precision machining for aircraft, transportation and other precision machining fields.
Across the state, Louisiana has welcomed key businesses over the years within the industries of Oil & Gas and Aerospace & Defense. Providing strategic investments for new manufacturing operations within the state, these companies are supported by jobs quickly rebounding to near-pre-pandemic numbers. Projections place Q4 of 2022 for a return to about 90% of jobs lost during the pandemic.
