California is not getting its fair share of manufacturing investment

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on April 19, 2012

In our efforts to monitor the manufacturing investment climate, we grabbed the country's investment numbers for 2011.  It looks like California continues to lose its fair share of investments to the rest of the country.

CA among the worst in national manufacturing investment

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on March 16, 2012

California is still not receiving its fair share of national manufacturing growth.

Site Selection Magazine released its annual data last week for manufacturing facilities investment by state.  We asked them for the dollar amounts and then normalized those numbers for population and combined them with the previous four years to provide a five-year per capita investment window.  It shows that California is not at all prepared to receive and grow manufacturing investment for our hundreds of thousands of unemployed middle class workers.

The national average for per capita manufacturing investment was $2,073, while California only received $325 -- second lowest only to Connecticut.  California even slipped from last yea's four-year ranking three places.
