A place your business can call home in Franklin County, Maine

Manufacturing

Wind farmThe abundant natural resources in Franklin County and surrounding areas have long supported pulp and paper, and wood products manufacturers. Throughout Franklin County and beyond into the rest of Western Maine, readily available granite, clay, and wood provided the first means of manufacturing in the region.

Two other natural resources, wind, and water are now bringing new industries to the area. Companies are operating in Franklin County to continue those long supported manufacturing traditions and to build on those traditions with new technology.

A positive attitude towards entrepreneurship combined with our history of manufacturing has paved the way for some niche successes in manufacturing. Origin USA, a company determined to bring textile manufacturing back to Franklin County, has found its home in downtown Farmington. Franklin County has facilities from manufacturing wood turnings, sustainable forestry, and plastics to alternative energy, biomass, and bottling water.
