Through funding provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, the North Carolina Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NCMEP) is providing supply chain sourcing opportunities and supplier matching services at no cost to North Carolina manufacturers. This program is being administered by NC State University Industry Expansion Solutions for the NCMEP network.
The objective of the program is to to expand existing capabilities to build a supply chain network that relies more on local and national suppliers to strengthen the U.S. manufacturing industry resilience.
Our supply chain experts will work with your organization to understand your supplier needs and match you with vendors who can meet your urgency to ensure you provide quality products on time to your customers.
When you submit a supply chain request, we will provide a list of suppliers that match the specifications you provide. Manufacturers are strongly advised to exercise due diligence before entering agreements and are solely responsible for vetting and ensuring the quality and regulatory compliance of all goods/services transacted.
The supply chain team publishes a weekly list of local and national supply chain needs requests that provide North Carolina manufacturers opportunities to grow their business.Check out the Supplier Scouting Opportunities.
