BUILT products can be tailored to a variety of industries, with one of those including manufacturing. From workstations to material handling to custom projects, solutions from BUILT are designed to make a manufacturing space modular and LEAN.

With the amount of investing taking place in manufacturing, you may be wondering why the industry is so important.

According to the National Association of Manufacturers, manufacturing puts significant amounts of money back into the economy. In fact, for every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, there is a total impact of $2.68 to the overall economy.

Obviously, goods need to be developed, produced, and delivered to match demand. Manufacturing makes this possible. Varying from manual assembly to automated mass production, manufacturing can look incredibly different from facility to facility.

When this comes to your space, the layout and flexibility of machines and workstations will be unique to you. Investing in modular options makes it easier to create a layout best for your business, with room to grow and adjust your floor plan as needed.

Growth in Manufacturing

The industry of manufacturing is growing rapidly. While many businesses shut down during the pandemic, manufacturing was often considered essential and would remain lively over the coming months and years.

However, it isn’t just in recent years that we’ve seen this growth.

The United States Census Bureau states that employment in manufacturing was at 11.7 million workers in 2018, up significantly from 2017. Now, according to the National Association of Manufacturers, the manufacturing sector employed 12.66 million workers in March 2022, with those numbers projected to continue increasing each month.

Processes within Manufacturing

Manufacturing includes a variety of steps and processes. From fabrication or creation, to assembly, to packaging to shipping, and more, each phase requires different skills and equipment.

When each of these spaces are innovating and automating, even more new technology is required.

BUILT believes that each of these steps along the way should be designed in a manner that is ergonomic for employees to work comfortably, safely, and productively.
