The Economy of Kalamazoo in a Glance

Kalamazoo was once famous for production of paper products, automobiles, buggies, stoves, cigars, mandolins and windmills. It was also a major agricultural hub in the area primarily known for the production of celery. Although, urbanization has engulfed most of the area yet the city still produces a large amount of farm crops especially soybeans and corn.

It is worth mentioning that Kalamazoo has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the United States. It is a major business center and 50% of all retail sales, 55% of total manufacturing in the country, 65% of Canada’s gross national product and 54% of USA’s business payroll are within 600 miles radius of the city.

Home to Numerous Manufacturing Companies

Kalamazoo has a rich industrial and manufacturing past. Even today, the city is home to numerous manufacturing companies producing everything from robotics to paper products, flight controls, automotive components, surgical and medical equipment, plastics, transportation equipment and fabricated metals

In the context of above paragraphs, some of the most noteworthy companies in Kalamazoo include Stryker Corporation, Checker Motors, Sweet Manufacturing Inc., ISK Industries and Pfizer.

Agriculture is the Backbone of the Economy

As mentioned above, agricultural is the main industry in the area. Agricultural contributes millions of dollars to the local economy through livestock and crops. There are more than 800 farms in the city spreading over an area of almost 150,000 acres. Major commodities are milk and dairy products, greenhouse plants and of course, soybean and corn. The Kalamazoo County supplies almost 10 percent of the plants in the United States and therefore, it is rightfully known as Bedding Plant Capital of the World.

Kalamazoo is an ideal city to live and work because it provides easy access to both Detroit and Chicago. Similarly, short communes of the city coupled with a strong community feeling are what separate Kalamazoo from other cities in southwestern Michigan.  The excellent quality of life, low cost of living and abundance of jobs have made Kalamazoo a preferred location for businesses and job seekers.
