Manufacturing in Rhode Island

In light of going to the the Rhode Island Manufacturing B2B event this week, I thought it would be fitting to share some cool facts about manufacturing in Rhode Island.

  1. Rhode Island is best known for manufacturing jewelry and silverware, but the leading manufactured product is electrical equipment.
  2. The first spinning jenny in the United States was built in providence in 1787. Three years later, Samuel Slater opened a cotton mill in Pawtucket, which was one of the first modern factories in America.
  3. RI employment in manufacturing is expected to grow 6% by 2024.
