New Hampshire Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NHMEP)

New Hampshire Manufacturing Extension Partnership logo

The New Hampshire Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NH MEP) is able to leverage a vast array of public and private resources and services that are available to every manufacturing enterprise in the state. The nationwide network of MEP Centers is linked through the U.S. Department of Commerce - National Institute of Standards and Technology's Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NIST MEP), with the common goal to strengthen the global competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers.

The challenge for manufacturers today is satisfying escalating customer expectations in an increasingly volatile and competitive global market while also maintaining satisfactory profit margins. With technological change happening so rapidly many small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) find it difficult to keep pace with the demands for new technologies that will enable them to remain profitably competitive. NH MEP provides affordable, innovative solutions to the problems encountered by today's manufacturing enterprise by facilitating interaction between industry, government and academia.
