Manufacturing Extension Partnership
Providing affordable consulting services to Northeast Ohio manufacturers.
Founded in 1984 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, MAGNET is the Northeast Ohio partner of the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), which is part of a national network of MEPs created through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology. MAGNET and other MEPs are dedicated to helping small and medium-sized manufacturers increase sales, create jobs and generate cost savings through technological innovation, workforce training and improved management practices. This public-private partnership allows MAGNET to offer affordable consulting services to Northeast Ohio manufacturers.
Fun fact: MAGNET was the pilot site for the MEP program, which now has locations in all 50 states and Puerto Rico!
