About MAMTC

MAMTC (Mid-America Manufacturing Technology Center) helps Kansas manufacturers address challenges and achieve success.

We do this by:

  • Connecting manufacturing enterprises with vetted and trusted resources;
  • Providing information and education to manufacturers and affiliated industries;
  • Advocating for critical local and global manufacturing issues throughout Kansas and beyond.

Vision

Our vision is to be recognized as the state’s primary solution resource for small and medium-sized manufacturers.

Mission

Our mission is to promote manufacturing growth in the state of Kansas. We do this by connecting and convening manufacturing enterprises with vetted and trusted resources when needed; providing education and information to and about manufacturing; and advocating critical issues for manufacturers throughout the state and beyond.

History

Founded in 1991, we were one of the first seven Manufacturing Technology Centers (MTCs) in the United States. We are now one of 51 centers serving all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) started the program because US manufacturers were facing growing global competition. Companies needed help as they slowly shifted from post World War II manufacturing methodologies.

Over the past two decades, MAMTC has made a significant financial contribution to the Kansas economy and established several offices throughout our state to better provide manufacturing management consulting services to the entire Kansas manufacturing community.

 

MAMTC is a not-for-profit corporation supported by a public and private partnership of Kansas companies, the Kansas Department of Commerce, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NIST MEP).
