Manufacturing Sector Receives Much-Needed Boost in Job Count as ManufacturingCrossing Continues to Add Jobs

August 28, 2008   |  PDF version  PDF version

Pasadena, CA — ManufacturingCrossing, an affiliate of EmploymentCrossing, one of the leading job boards in the US, has added 12,647 manufacturing jobs to its database in a bid to help the weakening manufacturing sector. The manufacturing job site provides users with instant access to a comprehensive pool of listings based on the given user's particular area of interest. ManufacturingCrossing scours thousands of webpages and more than 250,000 employer websites for exclusive manufacturing jobs and lists them in its database. The job board has only been intensifying its search for jobs of late in its constant quest to ward off unemployment in the manufacturing sector.

Meanwhile, many companies of different manufacturing backgrounds have tried to revive the economy by creating jobs in their respective fields. Vestas American Wind Technology Inc. has taken up a renewable energy project which will bring about 2,500 energy manufacturing jobs to Colorado. Hero/Beech-Nut is also hiring more than 100 job seekers for their new infant food manufacturing facility. Renewable Energy Corp. of Norway, meanwhile, has drawn up plans to initiate a new silicon plant worth $1.2 billion in Quebec, a move that's expected to bring more than 300 green-collar jobs to the city. The Ohio Department of Development is also working hard to increase manufacturing jobs. The department has awarded a 45% credit to Kurz-Kasch Inc. for its $1-million expansion plan in Miamisburg which will create 200 jobs in the state.

''Various manufacturing companies are doing their best in their respective sectors to solidify the manufacturing job market in their own ways,'' says Harrison Barnes, the CEO and founder of ManufacturingCrossing. ''ManufacturingCrossing is also doing its best to stage a major revival for manufacturing job seekers.''

The Shaw Group Inc, which deals in nuclear manufacturing, is planning to add over 2,900 jobs over the next decade, as it plans to create a nuclear manufacturing center in Louisiana. Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell believes that a solar manufacturing plant in his state will create more than 300 jobs, and has helped the state invest about $9 million in Flabeg's new solar production facility, which will be built in Allegheny County. Further east, a report by the New Hampshire Labor Bureau has stated that New Hampshire needs more manufacturing jobs to strengthen its economy. The report also stresses the need for more and more companies to come forward and create new jobs to thwart the unemployment problems in the state.

''It is important to create many jobs in every US state to combat the downturn and revive employment statistics all over,'' says Barnes. ''But what is more important for a job seeker is that he or she searches for jobs in the right place.

''ManufacturingCrossing is a revolutionary job board for manufacturing job seekers as it strives to post each and every manufacturing job that's out there. ManufacturingCrossing weeds out spam and jobs outside your niche, allowing you to search efficiently and specifically. Trust the only job source that's tailored to your industry.''

ManufacturingCrossing aims to update its website with all of the most recent manufacturing jobs. The website plans to add thousands of jobs this month in its continuing effort to offer the highest number of active jobs possible to job seekers. For more information, log on to
