For Manufacturers

Build your workforce with Dream It Do It!

Manufacturers identify workforce as their number one challenge! Working with Dream It Do It, you can be proactive in building the workforce of the future!


Why Manufacturing?

Manufacturers in the United States need to fill 4 million jobs by 2030, according to a workforce study by the Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte. You are part of an industry that remains the foundation of our regional economy. The three-county region of Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties account for $7.5 billion in annual shipments, a payroll of $805 million, employee benefits of $241 million and over 18,000 jobs. Average compensation in manufacturing jobs in the United States is $88,406 including pay and benefits. While manufacturing offers a great career opportunity, you and other manufacturers in the region struggle to find the workers needed.
