Welcome to the Made in Tennessee website, where we celebrate and connect Tennessee manufacturers!

Manufacturing is an integral part of Tennessee’s economy. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, Tennessee's manufacturers account for 16.28 percent of the total output in the state, employing 11.5 percent of the workforce. Total output from manufacturing was $51.14 billion in 2015. In addition, there were 341,500 manufacturing employees in Tennessee in 2016, with an average annual compensation of $67,456 in 2015.

The UT Center for Industrial Services would like to highlight the importance of manufacturing in the state, as the goal of the program is to support the Volunteer State’s manufacturing community by raising awareness of their products and providing resources to help them grow!
