TN Small Manufacturer’s Advantage Program

Developed specifically with our small (less than 100 FTE’s) companies in mind, the TN Small Manufacturer’s Advantage Program is funded through a cooperative agreement with the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership program (MEP), the Tennessee Small Manufacturer’s Advantage Program is a pilot program designed by the Tennessee MEP program (TMEP) to support small manufacturers (less than 100 FTEs) in Middle Tennessee.

Launched in September 2018 and based on best practices across the NIST MEP National Network, the program provides small manufacturers with access to the information, expertise and resources they need to:

  • analyze the current state of their business,
  • benchmark their business against other companies and,
  • develop a strategic and tactical business plan to take their business to the next level.
