Oregon Made

Oregon has a rich history of making. From our origins in the fur trapping industry, to our bustling port activities, our entrepreneurial origins are strong. Despite this history, Oregon does not come to mind as a manufacturing state in many people’s minds. Let’s change that.

5,737 Manufacturers in Oregon   |   $65.37 Billion in Output

About 15 years ago manufacturing only accounted for about $9 billion or 9% of Oregon’s economy. By 2012 it rose to 74 billion, or a whopping 39% of Oregon’s entire economic output – the highest proportion of any state.
