Nonmetallic Mineral Product Manufacturing
Businesses in this industry make products from minerals such as sand or stone.
These companies transform mined or quarried non-metal minerals (such as sand, gravel, stone, and clay) into products for consumption. They use processes such as grinding, mixing, cutting, and shaping. They often use heat or chemicals to change composition, purity, or chemical properties for the product. (For example, glass is produced by melting and shaping sand.) This industry also includes companies that make products such as bricks, ceramics, and glass.
This industry employs 7783 people in Minnesota.
