Manufacturing Sales Jump in September | News and Media | Government of Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan’s manufacturing sales took a leap in September from a year ago, increasing by 8.2 per cent, the highest rate among the provinces and more than five times the national average.  On a month-over-month basis, manufacturing sales were up 1.0 per cent, the third best among the provinces.  Manufacturing sales in September were $1.24 billion.

“Manufacturing is one of the mainstays of the Saskatchewan economy and the impressive year-over-year growth is good news,” Economy Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Our provincial manufacturers are innovative, competitive-minded and are meeting the needs of global markets with made-in-Saskatchewan solutions.”

About 26,200 people work in Saskatchewan’s manufacturing sector, which posted total sales of $14.1 billion in 2015.
