1 ADVANCED MANUFACTURING FAST 34,043 EMPLOYED IN FACTS : $66,551 1,181 SECTOR IN THE AVERAGE WAGE PER WORKER REGION REGION MANUFACTURING ESTABLISHMENTS IN THE SOURCE: JOBSEQ 2019 Northeast Florida is one of the largest manufacturing regions in the state. Competitive local assets including JAXPORT, three major rail lines, low electricity costs and ample available land for large facilities and operations provide the necessary infrastructure for innovative advanced manufacturing companies. The region s well-trained workforce is growing and will continue to outpace the U.S. average over the next decade, especially in areas of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and device manufacturing. Companies such as Georgia Pacific in Palatka are finding this an ideal area for company expansion, making a $400 million investment in its Palatka mill.

Manufacturing occupations offer excellent opportunities for wage growth, with average annual wages for new industry jobs at $46,044. SOURCE: JOBSEQ 2019 Advanced Manufacturing offers a multitude of career pathway options. In a Manufacturer s Outlook Survey (Q3 2018) from the National Association of Manufacturers, 73% of employers cited an inability to attract a quality workforce as their top challenge. Therefore, opportunities to get into and excel in the industry abound. Students can pursue secondary opportunities in drafting, aerospace technology, engineering, architecture and manufacturing academies and/or coursework. Students can earn industryrecognized credentials such as the MSSC certification set by the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council. BAKER CLAY DUVAL FLAGLER NASSAU PUTNAM ST.

4 According to the MFG Day website linked below, Manufacturing Day, which is held annually on the first Friday in October, helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders. In Northeast Florida, this opportunity transcends one day and encompasses an entire month of manufacturing company tours. High school students from Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns Counties engaged in tours of companies typically located within their home county. A planning committee under the First Coast Manufacturers Association (FCMA) made connections between schools and companies they thought would be closest in proximity to the school and/or relevant based on Career & Technical Education (CTE) or related curriculum offered at that school. Advanced Manufacturing companies are excited to attract talent to the industry; this is one touch point to begin doing so. Approximately three hundred students had the opportunity to experience company tours, as well as hands-on activities. They heard from individuals at various points in their career pathways to gain a better understanding of the industry and what it takes to achieve specific jobs in the industry. Nearly 30 schools participated in tours at host companies, exceeding the number of tours in recent years. Additional community partners engaged in this work with FCMA included Remedy Staffing, Templeton Manufacturing Solutions, CareerSource NEFL and JAXUSA Partnership. For more information, please visit

5 Manufacturing, Measuring and Math Increasing Awareness of Manufacturing Careers in Northeast Fl Mike Templeton of Templeton Manufacturing Solutions speaks to Fletcher High School students about the value of measuring skills in manufacturing. FloridaMakes-Florida Advanced Technological Education Center (FLATE) Community of Practice Workforce Development challenged institutions such as the First Coast Manufacturers Association and partners to create a project that increases awareness of manufacturing careers, pathways and earning potential with high school seniors to be implemented by December 1, Manufacturers from the First Coast Manufacturers Association such as Vac-Con and Kaman Aerospace, along with community partners such as Remedy Staffing, Templeton Manufacturing Solutions, Career Source NEFL, and JAXUSA Partnership collaborated on this project. Overall, the team wanted to increase awareness of manufacturing career opportunities in Northeast Florida. One of the skills job seekers often lack is how to use a tape measure. The team set out to create a curriculum which allowed area manufacturers to teach a lesson in measurement to high school math classes, ideally those with a large percentage of seniors who may be seeking to enter the workforce following high school graduation. The curriculum would provide instruction on proper use of a tape measure as well as emphasize the importance of this skill on entrylevel jobs as well as others along a career pathway. Students would be given tape measures to continue practice outside of the classroom. This real world, hands-on approach, titled Manufacturing, Measuring and Math, was intended to serve as a pilot project that could be replicated throughout the region. Fletcher High School in the Duval County Public School system was selected for the pilot. The overall goal was projected to reach 200 students in a total of 5 classroom periods among 2 teachers, showing an improvement in measurement scores following the Manufacturing, Measuring and Math activity and presentation. Over 240 students were reached during 7 classroom periods with an improvement in scores. Fletcher High School teachers Ebun Bolujo and Sandy Simpson permitted the team to present to their classrooms. Students were given a warm up activity, engaged in an activity in which they measured scrap components from a Kaman Aerospace, given a cool down activity to gauge progress, and learned about the industry via a PowerPoint presentation. The presentation highlighted demand, wage trends, success stories, and total compensation package information. The project team intends to involve additional manufacturers and schools throughout the region to expand the Manufacturing, Measuring and Math project s reach. Ultimately, the team wishes to increase connectivity between schools and companies and expand the awareness of career pathways within the industry. BAKER CLAY DUVAL FLAGLER NASSAU PUTNAM ST.

6 Student s dream of being aircraft electrician takes flight Beechum benefits from SJR State s partnership with Fleet Readiness ORANGE PARK Shannon Beechum s interest in airplanes and how they work inspired her dream of joining the Navy and becoming an aircraft electrician. Although she didn t enlist in the Navy, Beechum, 19, is still living her dream of becoming an aircraft electrician via a partnership between St. Johns River State College and Fleet Readiness Center Southeast, a program that began a year ago as SJR State and FRCSE sought a means for training the artisans of the future. Through this hands-on, paid training opportunity, students begin at a rate of $15.60 an hour and are guaranteed a federal job upon completion of the program. The apprentices are prepared for trade jobs such as electronics mechanic, machinist, sheet metal mechanic, painting and aircraft mechanic. I m doing exactly what I wanted to do, said Beechum. And I m getting paid to go to school. It s unbelievable. It s a blessing. Beechum attends classes at the Orange Park campus, and although the course content is challenging and keeps her quite busy, she remains thrilled about her career path and is grateful for the program's exceptional instructors as well as the tremendous support from her classmates. Beechum said that working together on the material with her classmates makes all the difference for her. Another plus for Beechum is having daily, relatable conversations with her dad about the apprenticeship. Beechum's dad, Terry, retired from FRCSE after working for the company for nearly 40 years. He was the one who introduced his daughter to the apprenticeship. Beechum said it s hard to put into words what it means to her to be following in her dad s footsteps. I can't even describe the level of joy I m feeling doing something that I know my dad s so proud of," she said. Beechum believes the apprenticeship program is also a wonderful opportunity for those not sure about their future. I think it s great for people who aren t sure what they want to do in life, especially if the military was their intended route or they just have a simple interest in airplanes, she said. You don t need any prior knowledge. You just submit an application, and they train you. It s definitely great for your future. According to Anna Lebesch, Vice President of Talent Development at JAXUSA Partnership, Advanced manufacturing, particularly in the area of aviation, is an industry that JAXUSA identified as one of our region s assets, needs and opportunities. Therefore, it is vital that we support new business and education partnerships, which strategically develop an ongoing talent pipeline. This program with FRCSE and SJR State is an excellent example of our region s employers, colleges and school districts working together to change the future of workforce development, Lebesch said.

7 Trends & Projections in Manufacturing Manufacturing projects continue to offer employment opportunities in new or existing companies undergoing expansion. JAXPORT continues to be a major driver of company interest in new projects. Available natural resources in Northeast Florida continue to be a tremendous value add in this industry. Manufacturers are projecting their hiring needs and looking at real numbers which will impact their bottom line. These projections are beginning to drive an increase in creative staffing solutions and a willingness to create or expand work-based learning programs such as apprenticeship to meet these needs. While the economy is currently strong, these programs need to remain scalable to keep up with the pace of industry change and projected retirements to lessen the impact of skill gaps. Manufacturing continues to demonstrate that it is clean, stable, and modern, with opportunities for a real career ladder. Concern continues about job loss due to technological advancements, but all industries will have some level of impact due to artificial intelligence and automation. The industry will remain vibrant, but the types of jobs will shift. For example, instead of physical labor, more process control techs will be needed. Did You Know? If you drank a cup of coffee today, it may have been brewed and packaged at Maxwell House in downtown Jacksonville. If you used a pen today, was it a Pilot Pen? If so, that pen was manufactured in our region by Pilot Pen Corporation of America. Georgia Pacific in Palatka produces tissue paper and paper towels, items we use each day. If you ve ever used Tide detergent, the signature scent is manufactured in Jacksonville. Have you sat down to a crab cake dinner lately? You may have eaten a food item manufactured at Beaver Street Fisheries Inc. Do you or someone you know wear contact lenses? Chances are that those lenses were manufactured and shipped out of the Johnson & Johnson Vision Care facility in Jacksonville. Bonus fact no human hands touch the lenses. The entire operation is robotic. Are you amazed by green energy? JinkoSolar (US) Inc. is the #1 global shipper of solar panels in the last 3 years. When is the last time you ve visited Disney World or Busch Gardens? Chances are you saw animatronic characters designed and manufactured at Sally Corporation in downtown Jacksonville for amusement parks and museums. BAKER CLAY DUVAL FLAGLER NASSAU PUTNAM ST.
