Advanced Manufacturing

With its central location within the U.S. and the Americas, Houston is an important industrial base with access to global markets. That access is aided by our world-class infrastructure around two international airports, four deep water seaports, rail lines, and highways that all help companies minimize their transportation and distribution costs domestically and internationally.


Boasting one of the largest manufacturing workforces in the country, Houston's skilled workforce includes specialties such as fabricated metal, machinery, and chemical manufacturing. Emerging and growing industries like medical devices, therapeutics, and food and beverage have taken root in the region as well.

Business Climate

As one of the most important industrial bases in the world, Houston has access to many global markets thanks to its central location within the U.S. and the Americas. With over 7,000 manufacturers in the region, Houston produces over $75.1 billion in goods annually and is among the most important globally advanced manufacturing and robotics ecosystems.
