Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP)

Last updated: 5 November 2017
The Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) is a nationwide network of resources that helps manufacturers transform to compete globally, supports greater supply chain integration, and provides access to technology for improved productivity. The MEP focuses on five strategic growth areas, including continuous improvement, technology acceleration and sustainabiliy. MEP consists of non-profit centers that provide small/medium sized manufacturers with the technical experience and services they need to succeed. For example, MEP provides assistance with implementing lean manufacturing and reducing material and energy consumption. The Parnership programme can also provide grants to partners and MEP affiliate centers, for example to encourage expanded manufacturing of green building technologies.
