Manufacturer's Edge Promoting a Vibrant Manufacturing Community

Let us be your first call for everything manufacturing related!

As Colorado’s official NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Center, Manufacturer’s Edge provides onsite support, strategy, planning, training, and technical assistance to manufacturers of all sizes. Manufacturer’s Edge is a nonprofit economic development organization with the mission “to grow and strengthen the Colorado manufacturing community.”  Like all economic developers, we work every day to attract, retain, scale, and assist companies by making sure they have the support and resources they need to succeed.  

Colorado’s unique manufacturing landscape has provided us with the opportunity to work across varied industries. Our clients drive technology development, creativity, and new products, and we work closely with them to make sure their work reaches its intended audience. Local insights, diverse experience, and true dedication to providing manufacturers support through our mission-based non-profit organization, make us the ideal partner as you engage with your local manufacturing community. 

Our offer to the economic development ecosystem is simple. Let us make your job easier. We are your plug-and-play partner ready to assist you every step of the way. In addition to our representatives and subject matter experts located strategically across the state, Manufacturer’s Edge also brings the power of the MEP National Network to you and the manufacturers in your community with over 2,000 trusted advisors and experts available through NIST MEP and the MEP centers located in all 50 states and in Puerto Rico.
