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.
Our vision is to be a proven resource with solutions that work to grow Kansas manufacturing.
Our mission is to grow Kansas manufacturing by delivering solutions to small and medium sized manufacturers with value driven results.
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).
