Northeast Florida is one of the largest manufacturing regions in the state.

Competitive local assets including JAXPORT, three major rail lines, low electricity costs and ample available land for large facilities and operations provide the necessary infrastructure for innovative advanced manufacturing companies such as Saft America and Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Inc. The First Coast Manufacturers Association (FCMA), a local, professional trade association, assists manufacturing companies coming to Jacksonville and is a great resource in the areas of government relations and workforce development.

Our well-trained workforce is growing and will continue to outpace the U.S. average over the next decade, especially in areas of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and device manufacturing. We are well positioned for success and provide ample opportunities for your company to grow.

"The region’s favorable business climate, skilled workforce including the ability to hire veterans, good logistic and low operational costs - among other things - solidified our decision to build our advanced Li-ION battery manufacturing plant at Cecil Commerce Center and relocate our U.S. headquarters to the area."
