Middle market manufacturers, like many middle market companies, bring new innovations and products to the market and compete with large incumbents, increasing standards and competitiveness. They contribute more to GDP per employee than small companies, and employ and train more staff. They export more than their smaller counterparts, and often invest more in research and development than larger companies.
Like other middle market companies, middle market manufacturers also have an important multiplier effect.
