Light Manufacturing Industry
In comparison to heavy industry, the light industry is usually characterized by less capital-intensive and more labor-intensive operations. Products made by light industries tend to be directly targeted toward consumers rather than business-to-business commerce. Most light industry products are produced for end users rather than for use in the production process of other industries.
Nevertheless, Cape Coral is home to a number of successful businesses that are manufacturing a range of products for international business to business commerce, from parts for the commercial ship industry to medical devices.
Unlike heave industry, light industry facilities typically have little to no environmental impact, in turn, zoning laws are more likely to permit light industry. Examples of light industries include the manufacture of consumer electronics, home appliances, apparel, and furniture.
