MORRIS PLAINS, NJ — 36 New Jersey manufacturing companies have recently joined the New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program, Inc. (NJMEP) campaign Made In New Jersey. These new companies bring the total manufacturers featured on the NJMEP website to 116. NJMEP launched its campaign to bring attention to manufacturers in the state. In addition to the Made in New Jersey page on its website, NJMEP.org, the companies are featured in the NJMEP newsletter, Manufacturing Matters and on its Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
Manufacturing has been a steady but quiet force that has recently been getting attention. In New Jersey, Governor Christie’s administration has initiated efforts to support the sector and on a national level the Obama administration has been doing the same.
NJMEP President & CEO, Robert Loderstedt explains, “NJMEP is part of a program that falls under the auspices of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. NIST has recently appointed manufacturing industry executive Michael F. Molnar to be the agency’s first-ever Chief Manufacturing Officer. This appointment confirms that manufacturing is once again a valued and respected component of our economy.”
“Our intent for the Made In New Jersey campaign is to raise the awareness of manufacturing in the state and emphasizes the breadth, depth and diversity of our manufacturers capabilities,” added Loderstedt.
