Proud to Manufacture in Michigan Program
Looking for a new supplier? Browse our directory or contact us.
MMTC wanted to honor the contributions of our state’s manufacturers and launched the Proud to Manufacture in Michigan campaign last year. Manufacturers were invited to display a Proud to Manufacture in Michigan poster in their facilities and the groundwork was set for the first annual Proud to Manufacture in Michigan Conference and Celebration. This year will be the second annual Conference on September 18-19, 2013 in Traverse City.
Because of the overwhelming positive response to the campaign, MMTC is excited to launch the official Proud to Manufacture in Michigan program! The goal of the program is to further support our state’s manufacturers by raising awareness of Michigan’s manufacturing community and the products made in our state.
