Our Partners

Manufacturing USA brings together industry, academia and federal partners within a growing network of advanced manufacturing institutes to increase U.S. manufacturing competitiveness and promote a robust and sustainable national manufacturing R&D infrastructure. Institutes reach across the entire manufacturing industry, and serve members from four critical sectors. Private Industry, Academia, Nonprofits and Government

Industry

Our mission revolves around commercial companies, from large multinational conglomerates to small local businesses. Look to us for streamlined manufacturing processes, new material solutions, workforce training or just a low-risk R&D environment.

Academia

The United States' academic institutions boast a proud history of providing impactful skilled workers and leading research and technology. As we accelerate the pace of delivery from lab to marketplace -- and train our next-generation manufacturing workforce – academic partners forge the way.

Nonprofit

Nonprofit organizations are critical to powering U.S. advanced manufacturing capabilities. As the voice for various technologies and sectors, our nonprofit members stimulate collaboration across communities and help bridge the gap between early-stage research and the market.

Government

Born as a federal program, Manufacturing USA coordinates across multiple federal agencies and organizations. Meet our federal partners at Manufacturing.gov. Our institutes also work with state and local governments to establish programs and initiatives that directly benefit their communities.

Manufacturing USA reports performance and coordinates alignment across the institutes in accordance with the program’s strategic plan. Read more about the program.
