Manufacturing Extension Partnership Mission
The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center is affiliated with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is part of the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Program. The MEP Program contains centers in every state of the United States to serve the manufacturing community. Quarterly surveys ensure full accountability and a performance scorecard of certified value for our customers.
The MEP Program is an outgrowth of the U.S. Government’s policy to develop and deploy technology, management and technical expertise for improving the competitiveness of manufacturing for small and medium-sized companies. These companies are critical to Michigan, representing 90% of job growth for high paying jobs having a 3-5 job multiplier effect in the economy. This means for every new manufacturing job created or retained, there are 3-5 supporting jobs.
Michigan Economic Development Corporation Partnership
The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center is closely affiliated with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) with the shared goal of making Michigan businesses vibrant, driving GDP growth, and creating new and lasting jobs.
The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center (The Center) is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). The Center complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices. As a result of this accreditation, The Center is authorized to issue the IACET CEU.
