Who We Are
Manufacturers & Friends of MEP
Please join the Manufacturers and Friends for MEP, an associate member group within the American Small Manufacturers Coalition, to tangibly demonstrate manufacturers’ support of the MEP Centers of the nation. The core of Manufacturers and Friends for MEP are the manufacturers that sit on MEP Center Boards, past manufacturing MEP board members, and manufacturing clients that have received MEP services and are passionate about the MEP mission.
These Manufacturers and Friends for MEP will lend their name to support MEP at the federal level, provide periodic information to support MEP advocacy efforts (e.g. respond to occasional surveys), and be available to contact federal legislators about manufacturing and MEP issues. By opting to become a Friend of MEP, ASMC will never sell, share or distribute your contact information, however you will receive periodic updates on the Manufacturing Extension Partnership and industry news.
