Top facil­i­ties, a strong work­force, and an unpar­al­leled logis­tics infra­struc­ture put New Orleans’ Advanced Man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor ahead of the curve.

Advanced Manufacturing


New Orleans is home to pre­mier NASA facil­i­ties, major high-tech man­u­fac­tur­ers, a tal­ented work­force, and a world-class incen­tive package.

NASA’s Michoud Assem­bly Facil­ity in New Orleans is fully equipped with the spe­cial equip­ment required for advanced man­u­fac­tur­ing, addi­tional regional assets include the nearby Sten­nis Space Cen­ter, Huntington-Ingalls’ Avon­dale Ship­yard, Bollinger’s ship build­ing and repair facil­i­ties, and Tex­tron’s two man­u­fac­tur­ing operations.

Pro­grams like NCAM (National Cen­ter for Advanced Man­u­fac­tur­ing) in New Orleans, also ensure a res­i­dent pop­u­la­tion of qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als. The advanced man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try in New Orleans has the advan­tage of per­fect loca­tion, unpar­al­leled infra­struc­ture, lucra­tive incen­tives and a tal­ented workforce.
