Macomb Business
Planning and Economic Development

The Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services sector in Macomb County consists of a robust network of businesses offering specialized skills, knowledge, experience, capacity, ethics, and creativity. The establishments in this sector provide services in both business to business environments and direct to consumer. 

Activities performed include: legal advice and representation; accounting, bookkeeping, and payroll services; architectural, engineering, and specialized design services; computer services; consulting services; research services; advertising services; photographic services; translation and interpretation services; veterinary services; and other professional, scientific, and technical services.

These activities require a high degree of expertise and training which can be gained at one of Michigan’s 15 public universities.





Since 2009, Macomb County has nearly doubled the number of Professional Services workers within the county, growing from 12,000 to 23,000. During this same time the state of Michigan and the United States have grown by 33.9 percent and 18.1 percent respectively.  This is triple the state average and more than six times the national. 

Engineering services has been the strongest growing sector within the field.  The continued advancement and increase in occupations in these industry codes have helped Macomb County’s economy grow. Historically, several of these industry and occupation clusters were geared toward operations based industries but today they have evolved to include innovation in new industry sectors ranging across fields such as IT and management operations.
