Wednesday, February 06, 2019
The Nebraska Chamber of Commerce and Industry is more than just a statewide chamber; it also serves as Nebraska's manufacturing association. Manufacturers in Nebraska account for 11.2% of the state's total economic output and employ nearly 100,000 individuals with an average annual compensation of $59,867 in 2016. In 2017, the total output from Nebraska's manufacturing sector was $13.60 billion -- larger than any other industry in the Cornhusker State. Manufacturers also help drive Nebraska's economy with their goods sold abroad. In 2017, Nebraska manufacturers registered nearly $6 billion in exports.
