Baltimore Industrial Group members like to say: "We don't create jobs, we create careers."
When our companies hire they are not only thinking about the long-term growth of the organization, but of the employee. Our members are interested in turning jobs into careers with interesting work and strong wages and benefits. While the Baltimore region has lost more than 100,000 manufacturing jobs over the past 30 years, we still have a vibrant sector that employs more than 63,000 people, according to a recent study by the Brookings Institution. These careers are in developing navigational, measurement and control instruments for the military, Brookings says. They are also in metal fabrication, chemicals, and food. Most of these jobs are with smaller companies, not the large steel, aircraft and automotive manufacturers that dominated the region.
