About Us

We Are an Economic Development Organization for Manufacturers

At Maine MEP, our mission is to facilitate economic development in Maine by providing needed services to Maine’s manufacturers, helping them become more efficient, productive, profitable and globally competitive. We partner with field experts, universities and colleges, government agencies and other economic development organizations to provide the best services and resources to our clients. By leveraging a network of industry, government and academic partners, we aim to be the premier service delivery resource and economic development organization for Maine manufacturers, providing enterprise-wide transformation, innovation and sustainability.

Maine Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) is supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (a subsidiary of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce) and the state of Maine to help small and medium-size manufacturers identify and implement advanced manufacturing and management technologies. Through a network of resources, Maine MEP links clients with local and national expertise. Maine MEP is a partner organization of Maine’s Department of Economic and Community Development and collaborates with other economic development organizations to provide integrated services to Maine manufacturers. We embed staff Maine Technology Institute, and the Advanced Manufacturing Center at the University of Maine Orono, and partner with both public and private entities to ensure statewide assistance is available to Maine’s manufacturers.
