The Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Initiative

Strengthening regional connections, growing regional manufacturing

With its position at the epicenter of technology, design, and innovation, the Bay Area has the potential to shape the future of manufacturing. We must work together to ensure that our region seizes this opportunity to retain and create middle-class jobs for a more equitable Bay Area.

Join us. Be part of the resurgent Bay Area manufacturing economy.

STATE OF URBAN MANUFACTURING REPORT

The inaugural Bay Area State of Urban Manufacturing report is the culmination of the first coordinated regional effort to directly survey urban manufacturers on the topics of workforce, business practices, supply chain connections, real estate challenges, and most importantly, to uncover the opportunities for the largest Bay Area cities to collaborate and grow: San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, and Fremont.

ABOUT THE INITIATIVE

Launched at the Bay Area Summit on Urban Manufacturing on November 17, 2016, the Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Initiative (BAUM) is a three-year project to facilitate the creation of a well-defined and interconnected regional manufacturing ecosystem.

The Initiative began with an effort to collect direct data from manufacturers in the four largest cities in the Bay Area: San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland and Fremont. The BAUM working group will use this data to establish specific initiative goals and yearly data will be collected to help Bay Area municipalities better quantify their manufacturing sectors.
