Arizona was recently ranked as a Top Ten State in the country for its workers by CNBC, citing a growing, educated workforce as a primary factor in that lofty status. Workers are moving to the state, evidenced by the U.S. Census Bureau data indicating Arizona had the third highest net migration rate in the country in 2021. In addition, a significant number of the state’s workers are educated, with 30% of Arizona residents having achieved their Bachelor’s degree or higher with 87% having at least their high school degree. Kingman’s workforce accurately reflects that standing, being one of the fastest-growing cities in the state.
Kingman is attractive to that workforce for several reasons.
The Kingman Industrial and Airport Park is the largest industrial park in Northern Arizona, home to vibrant, exciting companies like American Woodmark, West Coast Netting, Tru Serve, Interstate Trailers, Laron Engineering, Dillon Transportation, Cascades Tissues Group and Honeywell Aerospace.
A person’s dedication to continuing their education to further existing abilities or develop a new skill base is critical to ongoing improvement. Kingman’s workforce is fortunate to have access to the exceptional educational programs right in town at Mohave Community College. The comprehensive community college offers more than 80 associate degree and certificate options in 40 programs.
