2017 Year In Review
During the first year of CMTC's five year award to be California's Manufacturing Extension Partnership Center, we have made great progress in building a statewide network to serve Small and Medium-Sized Manufacturers (SMMs).
Last year, the Los Angeles County Economic Development corporation's Institute for Applied Economics used independent third party 2016 project survey data to determine the economic impact of CMTC's work with clients on California's economy.
The results included:
- A contribution of $3.3 Billion to California's GDP
- More than 10,000 created/retained jobs
- More than $291 Million in local, state and federal tax revenues
This impact can be attributed to the hard work of the CMTC Team and our partners in California's Manufacturing Network.
2017 Impact for California Manufacturers
The CMTC® mission is to ensure that manufacturers flourish by identifying areas of improvement in capability process and systems to create financial impact. California manufacturers are important contributors to innovation, investment and productivity in the U.S. Our success stories (available on the left) outline specific project impacts by industry sector and service.
CMTC is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Program that ensures our high customer satisfaction ratings. All customers are surveyed by an independent third-party to verify that we have delivered impact to our clients.
CMTC's California Manufacturing Network provided solutions to improve the growth and profitability of more than 1,100 small and medium-sized manufacturers in 2017.
2013 Next Generation Manufacturing Study (Summary)
In the two years since the last Next Generation Manufacturing Study (NGM) Study, U.S. Manufacturers have seen major gains in revenue and profits. Yet the NGM Study finds that most manufacturers - as successful as they aretoday - aren't investing in the strategies that will carry their firms into tomorrow. Find out what these strategies are by downloading the NGM summary.
