About The Exhibit

America’s manufacturing sector plays a major role in the U.S. economy. When manufacturers are developing and producing innovative products that are sold around the world, the U.S. economy grows. Increased manufacturing also encourages the growth of secure, well-paying jobs. To make a measurable impact on rebuilding U.S. manufacturing and creating jobs, the Manufacturing Extension Partnership is focused on a Make It In America agenda. 

MEP supports job creation now and in the future by encouraging manufacturers to collaborate in developing products in America. Through various public-private partnerships, MEP provides a valuable infrastructure that fosters resilient processes for manufacturers to Make It In America. 

The Make It In America Exhibit gives observers a glimpse of the variety of innovative products made by MEP clients from around the country. Each product displayed shows the dedication, quality and ingenuity one expects from American manufacturers. U.S. manufacturers donated the products to the Make It In America Exhibit in an effort to educate and celebrate American manufacturing and innovation.
