Life sciences is one of New Hampshire’s key industries and it’s growing. About 6,800 people are employed in this sector, 10 percent above the national average and the average annual earnings are over $100,000.
That is great data, but behind the data are the companies that are fueling our economy and making our lives easier and safer with the products they make. Last week at the BIOMEDevice trade show in Boston, I was pleased to see and talk to so many New Hampshire companies at this event and I am sure to see them again next month.
That’s when one of the industry’s biggest medtech trade shows, MD&M East (booth 1156), gets underway in New York City June 13-15 and we’ll be there to promote the strengths of our life sciences sector and why New Hampshire is great place for companies considering expansion or relocation.
With such a strong and growing sector now, the New Hampshire High Technology Council established a BioTech/MedTech cluster to bring together these companies to ensure the industry continues its robust growth.
