Southern Vermont is a place for makers of all kinds. From snowshoes to fishing rods, bridge spans to clothes hangers, optical filters to pottery, and medical batteries to nutritional supplements, manufacturing has been a lasting part of the regional economy since the early American Industrial Revolution.
Several of the state’s fastest-growing manufacturers are here in Southern Vermont: G.S. Precision, Against the Grain Gourmet, Mack Molding, Chroma Technology, Maplebrook Farms, Kaman Composites, Bradford Machine, The Orvis Company, Commonwealth Dairy, Vishay Tansitor, Whitney Blake and Sonnax. The region’s access to major northeastern markets, exceptional workforce productivity, and support for workforce development trainings provides manufacturers with the tools they need to expand their footprints and stay ahead of the curve.
