New Entrepreneurs
Worcester is home to about 150 manufacturing companies that produce an impressive variety of goods.

These firms operate within a spirited manufacturing tradition that began in the early nineteenth century, when the United States was feeling the first stirrings of the industrial revolution. Some firms engage in traditional Worcester production that built the city, like metalworking and machine making. David Clark Company continues its partnership in space with NASA, and Jamesbury remains a world leader in valves. The newest local industries are in the fields of plastics, biotechnology, and electronics and fiber optics.
