Manufacuring, Distribution, and Logistics

Manufacturing has a long history in Tampa Bay, where it is a source of innovation for a wide range of industries. The region has the second largest base of manufacturing employment in Florida, and is home to the global headquarters of Jabil, along with more than 2,800 other manufacturing firms employing nearly 62,000 people.
From precise military specifications to the creation and development of medical devices and manufacturing in highly regulated industries, our businesses are advancing modern manufacturing technology and making an impact across the globe.
