Gladwin County’s manufacturing industry is robust and growing at record levels. Its history, which dates back many generations, is truly the “heartbeat” of our beautiful community. The impact of our many manufacturers, large and small, is seen throughout the world as their products are sold in nearly every state in the U.S. and in over 60 countries world-wide.

Most operations have seen a 10-60% growth in employee numbers in recent years and nearly 20% of all Gladwin County employees work in a manufacturing-related process. This gives testament to the highly-skilled workers in our area and to the many partners in the Great Lakes Bay Region who are fully engaged to ensure the success of our business community through building awareness and providing training opportunities to support our industry.

Manufacturers work closely with local K-12 schools and Mid Michigan Community College to recruit talent and often benefit from the co-op, internship and job-shadowing opportunities that are offered through our award-winning education systems. Strong partners such as the Gladwin County Economic Development Corporation, Michigan Works!, the Small Business Development Center, Career and Technical Education, the Central Michigan Manufacturer’s Association, and many others work in close collaboration to meet the needs of our thriving industry.

Mid Michigan Community College has been instrumental in pulling together industry leaders to develop programs that best meet the educational and training needs of our companies. Courses offered through their Advanced Integrated Manufacturing program are designed to meet the long-term, ever-increasing demand for skilled talent in our region.

We hope that you will consider coming to our community to experience the rich culture and industry-friendly environment that is sure to support your business success.
