RESERVE — Local manufacturing success is getting a new boost from the old college try.

The Partnership provides a full range of services to Manufacturers, including growth and cost-reduction strategies, website development and branding, process and quality improvement, engineering and prototyping, facility layout and leadership training.

All activities are focused on increasing productivity, profitability and manufacturing success. The Manufacturing Partnership also connects manufacturers to workforce development services offered by all colleges in the system.
