Manufacturing was the top contributor to Oregon’s GDP in 2022. The Manufacturing Advising Team (MAT) at the Oregon SBDC can help you grow, rebuild and reinvent.

Oregon’s manufacturing industry has evolved over the past 25 years, with manufacturing concentrated in four subsectors: high-tech electronics, wood products, food and beverages, metals, transportation, and other advanced manufacturing.

Manufacturers directly impact Oregon’s economy by producing a wide array of durable goods, including semiconductors, aircraft parts, lumber, and railcars. Oregon’s economy is also supported by producers of non-durable goods, including craft beer, wine, and canned fruits and vegetables.

The Manufacturing Advising Team services are offered at no cost to small businesses and include a confidential business assessment, planning, development, strategic advising, resources, and support.
