Manufacturing in Grey County is alive and well. In fact, this sector accounts for 12% of our workforce and has more than quadruple the exports of the next closest sector.

Part of its success is due to the incredible workforce and the reasonable cost of doing business in rural Ontario. Manufacturing is also supported by major organizations such as Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC) which was born in Owen Sound and now serves the sector nation-wide.

The region is also attracting new Bruce Power suppliers and establishing an advanced manufacturing niche. Other manufacturing specialization includes wood furniture, printing, packaging, mining equipment and metal fabrication.

Top employers include Transcontinental Printing, Hobart Food Equipment Group Canada, Viking-Cives, Ltd and Chapman's Ice Cream.
