Posted by IndustryNet on Thursday, November 30, 2017

Top USA machine shopsIndustryNet's latest data on U.S. machine shops shows the industry is experiencing an uptick in demand. The state of the machine shop industry is strong, with a total of 184 companies employing 2,780 people this year. IndustryNet recorded a half percent rise in the sector overall, as well as a 1.3% rise in sales.

At the moment, the majority of machine shops in the country are in the Midwest area, followed by a tie for the South Atlantic and West South Central regions. New England has the fewest machine shops, with only 4 percent of the companies.

Interestingly, the Midwest region is not only the area with the most businesses, but also the area with the most employment growth in the industry, with 23 percent of companies reporting growth to IndustryNet located there.

With a clear idea of the industry's size as well as the regions of the country where it is most active, here are top machine shops in the USA by number of employees, square footage and employee growth.
