Five-Year Growth Trends at the 35 Largest In-plants
With years of data collected on the largest in-plants, In-plant Graphics decided to take a look back at how these large shops have changed in size over the past five years. We created a series of bar charts showing the number of employees at these in-plants from 2012 - 2016.
In most cases, there is a clear downward trend in in-plant staff size. It's most pronounced at the very largest in-plants, like the Government Publishing Office, which dropped from 677 employees in 2012 to 554 this year. Allstate too showed a fair amount of downsizing as its employee count went from 470 to 353 over those five years.
This trend toward decreasing staff size is not universal, though. Several inplants have increased in size, some substantially. Mayo Clinic and the State of Tennessee each took on additional departments and added to their employee counts. U-Haul also shows steady growth over the past five years, as does the University of Alabama.
We have created charts showing growth trends of the next 25 large in-plants as well. This special report is available free of charge by clicking the link below.
