State of Manufacturing in the Pacific Northwest

At Schwabe, we understand that the manufacturing and distribution industries shape the economy of the entire Pacific Northwest.


Together with Aldrich CPAs + Advisors, the Puget Sound Business Journal, and the Portland Business Journal, we are delighted to present you with the results of our second survey on the State of Manufacturing in the Pacific Northwest. 

Since our first survey in 2018, we have stayed on top of changes affecting the manufacturing industry. We are grateful to continue the conversation to reveal and understand the new challenges and opportunities for growth.

Over 500 industry members throughout Oregon and Washington participated in the survey to share their insights, challenges, opportunities, and, ultimately, optimism.

We hope you find the answers as valuable and inspiring as we do.
