The act or process of producing something.
Manufacturers convert raw materials into useable goods. People who choose this career path work hard to solve complex problems and create products that improve processes, products and people. It is often rewarding work that offers job security and advancement opportunities.
In Southeast Colorado, several small and large-scale manufacturing companies employ our local workforce. Not all jobs are manufacturing focused, though. These businesses also hire brand managers, marketers, accountants, human resources, operations, engineers and more. Exciting employment opportunities like these help improve the quality of life for those living and working in Colorado’s eastern plains.
