The Manufacturing Economy of Metro Eugene

Friday, September 22, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Engage with the Eugene City Club. Last year, Eugene was ranked as one of America’s “Top 5 College Towns.” However, while Eugene is a town with a college (or three), it is not simply a “University Town.”

According to the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce, Lane County is home to over 500 technology companies, which employ nearly 4,000 people; 173 food and beverage companies, which are expected to grow at nearly twice the rate of the rest of the economy over the next five years; and over 200 wood products manufacturing companies, employing over 7,000 people.

During the City Club of Eugene’s 2023-2024 program year, we’ll be hosting a series of programs designed to understand the fullness of Eugene’s economy – its opportunities and challenges, its dynamism and constancy. We’re starting with a conversation about the manufacturing economy of our region, hosted by Arcimoto at its Eugene factory, and featuring three amazing panelists from different sectors within manufacturing. We hope you’ll join us for this in-depth look at a key component of our region’s economy and we hope you’ll stick around for a factory tour and a free test ride in one of Arcimoto’s FUV’s (that’s fun utility vehicle).
