The industrial sector was once thriving in New York City due to the large labor pools and access to land and water transportation. By 1950, more than two million jobs were located in New York City alone. However, since then, many industrial businesses have relocated to the South or overseas.
Today, industrial jobs are primarily in four major areas - wholesale trade, manufacturing, construction and transportation/warehousing, and utilities and waste management. Industrial companies are small business owners and are a vital employer, especially to those living in boroughs outside of Manhattan.
NYCBA is committed to the retention or expansion of industrial and manufacturing businesses and Industrial Business Support Providers within the City. Please contact us to learn more about how NYCBA services can assist you with your plan examination and inspection requirements.
