Partnership job development programs bring in nearly 5,000 jobs in 2013

The San Joaquin Partnership, a private, non-profit economic development organization marketing San Joaquin County, CA, attracted seven new businesses, expanded six and retained one, according to its annual report, presented last week by President and CEO Michael Ammann, at the annual breakfast.

The annual Report is now online at the San Joaquin Partnership website. "We still see the same trends," Ammann said. "The trends of folks migrating east out of the East Bay and out of the Bay Area." "This manufacturing trend investment should continue with the implementation of "California Competes" incentives in 2014 that are focused on attracting manufacturing jobs," Ammann writes in the annual report.

New manufacturing companies included Ecologic which has opened in Manteca, International Windows, which opened a plant in the Airport Gateway Center; Michael & Company Precision Metal Fabricators, which moved from Galt to Lockeford; and NEMO Building Systems, which has opened a start-up operation in Lathrop at the former total Fuel Systems facility, which closed when the NUMMI Plant in Fremont shut down its operations. Two manufacturing companies expanded last year: Sunrise Fruit & Nut Company and Trinchero Family Estates, a Lodi winery, which is in the process of a multi-million dollar expansion doubling its wine making capacity. The Partnership's 2013 job development programs have resulted in the creation of 4,901 jobs, $950 million of industrial output and $270 million in labor income in 2013.
