WMEP is an affiliate of NIST’s Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), a national network of 59 centers that provide assistance to small and midsize manufacturers.
For the past 20 years, the MEP has worked with manufacturers to realize cost savings, new sales, and retained sales. The MEP system produces more than $1.4 billion in cost savings and $9.1 billion in increased or retained sales annually. MEP provides companies with services and access to public and private resources that enhance growth, improve productivity, and expand capacity.
WMEP is actively involved in the national MEP Network, serving on multiple committees and task forces, and helping to guide NIST priorities and initiatives. WMEP can also draw on this unmatched peer network to bring additional expertise to bear on for any Wisconsin manufacturer.
