We are the premier statewide service provider and consulting organization, and we are committed to building a thriving manufacturing industry across Tennessee.  

Our Solutions Consultants are located regionally across the state to provide your company with localized expert technical assistance and manufacturing resources in both the public and private sectors that will help you identify areas of improvement, streamline processes, and ultimately increase global competitiveness. 

Housed in the University of Tennessee Center for Industrial Services, the Tennessee Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) is a part of the national Manufacturing Extension Partnership National Network, which is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Our consultants can collaborate across our state and beyond to pull in expertise as needed or to participate in multi-state projects. We are part of a unique public/private partnership model that helps make Tennessee MEP services accessible to small and medium-sized manufacturers. 

We succeed when you succeed and we seek to deliver a high return to you as part of our mission to help you achieve your company goals.
