The Manufacturing Extension Partnership of Mississippi
The Manufacturing Extension Partnership of Mississippi (MEP.ms) is an organization that works to assist Mississippi manufacturers. MEP.ms works with partner organizations to provide expertise and services tailored to the most critical needs of area manufacturers, which range from process improvements and worker training to business practices and applications of information technology. MEP.ms partners include the Mississippi Manufacturers Association, several Mississippi Universities and Community Colleges, and private sector service providers.
In addition to our state-wide partners, MEP.ms is part of a nationwide network of not-for-profit centers with more than 400 locations nationwide whose mission is to provide small and medium sized manufacturers with the tools necessary to achieve maximum success. The centers, serving all 50 states and Puerto Rico, are linked together through the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology. By being a part of such a large network of manufacturing service providers, we can deliver nearly any service that is required by a Mississippi Manufacturer.
MEP.ms is located at Innovate Mississippi, a nonprofit economic development organization in Ridgeland.
