About WMEP

Wisconsin’s MEP Network

The Wisconsin Center for Manufacturing and Productivity (WCMP) engages with partnerships and initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels.

The WCMP is the official NIST Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) center for Wisconsin.  The NIST Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) is a national network with thousands of specialists trained to help small-and medium-sized manufacturers increase innovation, profitability, and competitiveness.

The MEP system focuses on five critical areas: technology acceleration, supplier development, sustainability, workforce, and continuous improvement. Experienced MEP specialists help manufacturers develop new customers, expand into new markets, and create new products. With the help of the MEP framework manufacturers tackle both short- and long-term issues, including strategic planning, workforce development, business growth, and operational excellence.

We connect people with the resources they need to thrive in a global economy

Specializing in: • Growth • Operations • People

Collaborating with WMEP Manufacturing Solutions (Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership) and the UW-Stout Manufacturing Outreach Center (MOC), the WCMP helps small and medium-sized manufacturers across the state grow and thrive in an increasingly challenging business environment.
