Economy of Michigan

Michigan ‘s economy is very diverse; agriculture, mining, food processing, woodworking, tourism and other industries are well developed here. But, undoubtedly, the “main” direction in the economy of Michigan is the automotive industry.

It is here, in the metropolitan area of the “automotive capital of the world” Detroit, that the headquarters of the “big three” American car manufacturers are located: General MotorsFord Motor Company and Chrysler. More than four thousand enterprises operate in the state, from very small to giant ones, one way or another connected with the automotive industry.

About five hundred and seventy thousand people in the state are employed in high-tech industries, Michigan ranks fourth in this indicator in the United States. Over seventy thousand of these workers are employed precisely in automobile plants.

The automotive industry is directly related to the very high (third – fourth place in the US) level of spending on research and development in Michigan. So, for example, by order of the US federal government in Michigan, work is underway to create electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries for them, and many others.

Of course, Michigan factories don’t just make cars. Among the well-known machine-building enterprises of the state are the factories of the famous manufacturer of industrial lasers ROFIN-SINAR Technologies, one of the world’s leading suppliers of military and aerospace equipment General Dynamics, the largest manufacturer of household appliances Whirlpool and others.

In Michigan, and especially in the Detroit metropolitan area, many organizations in the information industry are successfully operating. The headquarters or regional offices of well-known companies such as CompuwareIBMGoogleHP Enterprise ServicesProQuestComcastVerizon and others are located here.

Several units of the US Armed Forces are based in Michigan, including the Selfridge Air National Guard Base, a number of logistics units and other facilities.
