TARGET INDUSTRY 2: Light Manufacturing

Light Manufacturing Opportunities in Cape Coral

The light manufacturing industry is typically characterized by less capital-intensive and more labor-intensive operations. Products made by light industries are directly targeted toward consumers or for business-to-business commerce. Cape Coral is home to a number of successful businesses that are manufacturing a range of products, from parts for the commercial ship industry to medical devices.


Light industry facilities typically have little to no environmental impact. In turn, zoning laws are more likely to permit light industry. Examples of Cape Coral business opportunities in the light manufacturing industry include:

  • Electronics
  • Information Technology hardware 
  • Solar Industry devices
  • Power hand tools
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Office machines
  • Engineering laboratories
