Did you know that every state has a Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) center dedicated to helping manufacturing companies grow and succeed? Each MEP center (in the Show Me State, we are referred to as Missouri Enterprise), has a team of experts with years of experience working in the industry. At Missouri Enterprise, our team collectively has more than 300 years of experience with an average of 29 years each in the industry. I wanted to share some impressive figures about the impact we bring to manufacturing. We are a public-private organization and for every one dollar of federal investment, the MEP National Network generates $17.9 in new sales growth for manufacturers and $27 in new investment. Talk about return on investment. Whether it’s to help connect you with suppliers, work more efficiently, reduce variations and waste, incorporate safe practices, or connect with customers around the globe, your MEP center has manufacturers covered.
