The industry is an economic multiplier. For every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.82 is added to the economy. With the majority of manufacturing handled by small – medium-sized companies, it’s critically important to ensure this industry has a voice.

NJMEP is proud to help ensure manufacturers have a voice and will continue working to keep these business leaders educated about all the opportunities available.
