NIST plans to establish two new Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Centers
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently announced proposals to establish two new Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) centers in South Dakota and Kentucky. According to MEP, these centers would join a network of more than 400 MEP centers and field offices in place nationwide and in Puerto Rico.
This is good news for manufacturers in these states and the economy as a whole. According to MEP, for every one dollar of federal investment, MEP generates $32 in new sales growth, and every $1,570 of federal investment, MEP helps to create or retain one manufacturing job.
