Manufacturing is one of Utah’s basic industries and creates tremendous value in the economy. Why?—because along with agriculture and mining, it’s the only industry that actually creates new wealth. All other industries create added value from an already existing product or service.

That is why it is important that we educate Utahns on the economic impact that the manufacturing industry has in the state: it makes up nearly 14% of the state’s economy, totaling $14 million of economic activity, and employs more than 125,000 Utahns. Informing the community of these numbers is crucial in maintaining and encouraging a positive business environment, and a key initiative of the UMA. The old saying holds true: "What Utah makes, makes Utah."

We are proud to present our series of "member spotlights" of those companies that provide jobs and economic opportunities by making things in Utah.
