Rochester NH is a national leader in aerospace, advanced manufacturing and composite manufacturing.
Expansion Solutions magazine named the city in its Top 5 Award of Excellence for Advanced Manufacturing (2013) for “capitalizing on a proud history of textile manufacturing, the region plays to its strengths of productive talent pool, manufacturing innovation and high value operational cost structure.” The magazine also hailed the city’s “coordinated” marketing of local, state and federal incentives and services such as workforce training, real estate, transportation and financing services, a key element of its attraction for this new generation of manufacturers.
The city’s success in attracting and retaining innovators has created synergies and a hardy community of supporting industries.
SAFRAN Aerospace, Albany International, Laars Heating System, Lydall Performance Materials, LHR Sporting Arms and Spaulding Composites are just a few of the firms that have made Rochester NH a base for their operations. That in turn, has given growth to services and suppliers from industrial supplies to training to component manufacturing.
And we remain committed to providing ongoing assistance for businesses.
Rochester has been a leader in establishing the Seacoast Manufacturing Exchange, a quarterly forum where manufacturers meet, network, exchange ideas and work together to identify partnerships and cultivate new markets and product opportunities. The city also hosts a monthly Business Round Table and collaborates with other Seacoast Region communities and businesses to identify areas opportunities and encourage strategic relationships.
