  • Connect manufacturers and supporters to build your business
  • Advocate for legislation and rules that benefit manufacturing
  • Support and promote international trade
  • Educate Montanans about training and employment opportunities in our growing manufacturing industry
  • Promote the economic and career benefits of manufacturing by touting its contributions to our state’s economic growth and highlighting its role in the development of a strong workforce in Montana
