Local Workforce

Over 80% of North Bay’s workforce has completed high school, with 56% having graduated from a trade school, technical college or university. Our firms have turnover rates of less than 5% and correspondingly low rates of absenteeism. While we have both union and unorganized shops, work disruptions are rare . Starting wages for machinists, welders, and industrial mechanics are extremely competitive. The resulting productivity levels have helped many of our multinational companies win internal global competitions for capital expansions.
