Introducing ManufacturingUSA.com

New website shares the progress of institutes and Manufacturing USA partners to improve U.S. manufacturing

Published: Monday, October 24, 2016 - 15:19

(NIST: Gaithersburg, MD) -- The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Advanced Manufacturing National Program Office has launched a new industry-facing website, ManufacturingUSA.com. In September 2016, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker announced Manufacturing USA, the new public name for the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation. ManufacturingUSA.com will serve as a key resource—a destination for learning about technology innovations, upcoming events, and industry news coming from the Manufacturing USA institutes.

The site provides a platform to:
• Highlight the impact that the institutes and the Manufacturing USA partners are making on U.S. manufacturing
• Inform potential new members about how to participate and engage in the program
• Highlight the unique offerings of each institute
• Continue to educate the manufacturing industry on the opportunities available through Manufacturing USA

The updated website provides examples of how the Manufacturing USA institutes are working to move promising, early-stage research in their specific technology areas into proven capabilities ready for adoption by U.S. manufacturers.

The website you see today is just the foundation. During the coming months, the site will continue to improve to showcase the information about technology and advanced manufacturing development opportunities available through the program and through the Manufacturing USA institutes. Included will be stories of how the institutes and partners are making a difference.

NIST’s invite you to explore the site, and encourages you to check back regularly to see the progress and advances to further advanced manufacturing in the United States.

To offer feedback about the website, or to learn more about Manufacturing USA, contact ManufacturingUSA@nist.gov.
