What is the future of stuff and why does it matter to Portland? If you track the rise of small piece manufacturers like Spooltown and the strength of high-tech manufacturers like Biamp, and combine it with the growth of maker communities from ADX to Etsy, you might just think Portland is leading the resurgence of American made.
The Portland Development Commission thinks so, and since 2009 has dedicated resources to promoting advanced manufacturing and the athletic/outdoor industries, adding high wage jobs and growth to the economy.
