Major Employers in the Lubbock MSA
The Lubbock MSA’s largest employers are mostly institutional – universities, hospitals, schools, etc.
There is a very limited presence of manufactures among the region’s major employers, but this is not unusual in the current economic era. U.S. manufactures have become more productive, increasing their output while minimizing their labor needs. Capital investment can be large, even if employment is not. The list of new company announcement in the Lubbock area reinforces this trend: manufacturers are definitely included among the list of recent expansions, but their hiring is relatively restrained.
