The Proud to Manufacture in Michigan Blog is dedicated to providing the manufacturing community with important information about manufacturing, innovation, growth, lean and other topics within the industry. In addition, blog entries will provide quick tips on how companies in the state can become more competitive and profitable. This blog will act as a forum to discuss important issues within manufacturing, which is one of the United States’ strongest industries.
The Proud to Manufacture in Michigan Blog is an extension of the newly launched Proud to Manufacture in Michigan program. MMTC wanted to honor the contributions of our state’s manufacturers and launched the Proud to Manufacture in Michigan campaign last year. Manufacturers were invited to display a Proud to Manufacture in Michigan poster in their facilities and the groundwork was set for the first annual Proud to Manufacture in Michigan Conference and Celebration to be held this August 15th and 16th! Click here to find out more details about the premiere manufacturing event of the year.
Proud to Manufacture in Michigan will further support our state’s manufacturers by raising awareness of Michigan’s manufacturing community and the products made in our state.
MMTC offers personalized consulting services which are fitted to the needs of clients. MMTC strives to develop more effective business leaders, promote company-wide operational excellence and foster creative strategies for growth and profitability. MMTC operates through a cooperative agreement between the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under the Department of Commerce.
MMTC’s state partner is the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). The MEDC is a public-private partnership serving as the state’s marketing arm and lead agency for business, talent and jobs, tourism, film and digital incentives, arts and cultural grants and overall economic growth. Founded in 1999, MEDC also developed and manages the state’s Pure Michigan brand.
