Utilizing staff expertise and collaborative partnerships, CMTC enhances operational performance and productivity, drives new product development, market expansion, and technology adoption for California’s manufacturers. CMTC serves the unique needs and challenges of small and medium-sized manufacturers through a broad array of services which improve the top and bottom line.
CMTC exclusively serves small and medium-sized manufacturers who represent 94% of the manufacturers in California and create 90% of the sector’s job growth. These are high paying jobs with each creating an additional 3 to 5 non-manufacturing jobs that also contribute to the California economy.
To facilitate access to services and expand outreach, CMTC formed and leads California’s Manufacturing Network. The Network provides a broad range of technical assistance services and resources in urban and rural regions throughout California. It is a collaboration of more than 25 manufacturing-focused partners who assist CMTC in delivering a statewide Manufacturing Extension Partnership program.
California’s Manufacturing Network serves more than 1,200 manufacturers annually, generating significant positive financial impacts for our clients and for the public good in California. The Network measures its performance via third party administered client surveys which quantify satisfaction and impact.
