The Made in Tennessee program, started in 2013, is a membership program that allows registered members to have a profile in a manufacturing directory through which other businesses and customers can locate information about products and services. Members of the program are granted use of the Made in Tennessee logo so that they can proudly display where their products are made. Enrolled businesses also have the opportunity to be featured in a UT CIS Manufacturer of the Week social media campaign or as a part of our Manufacturer Spotlight video series.
The goal of the program is to support the Volunteer State’s manufacturing community by celebrating the people who are a part of this community as well as raising awareness of the products they produce.
Manufacturing is an integral part of Tennessee’s economy and this program aims to support growth, innovation, and job creation in this sector. Register your manufacturing organization today!
