Is metro Detroit a good place to relocate a business? If so, what’s the “state of this region” when it comes to attracting newcomers looking to grow their businesses?
Justin Robinson, senior vice president, business development at the Detroit Regional Partnership, points out a large labor pool and workforce of approximately 2.65 million people, meaning this region’s workforce is larger than 28 other states. He cites the following:
- The current workforce and talent pipeline are becoming more technology-oriented. Because the future of auto/mobility now involves so many new technologies, this region is attracting nontraditional automotive companies for investment opportunities, i.e., Waymo, Navya, Rivian, Samsung.
- It’s home to the largest and fastest growing engineering clusters in the U.S., with more than 80,000 engineers employed and more than 6,000 engineers produced annually through our colleges and universities. This represents a 26 percent increase in engineers employment over the last five years.
- And Detroit is still the undisputed leader in automotive with 19 OEMs and 96 of the top 100 suppliers to North American having a presence here.
