Economic Impact at the State Level of the Michigan Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP)
The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center (MMTC) is the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) center for the state of Michigan. The MEPs for each state combine to provide services to primarily manufacturing companies, but also to firms in other sectors, that help clients become more competitive and improve productivity. MEP is part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
In 2017, the national MEP/NIST organization selected Upjohn to estimate the economic impacts of the combined centers on the macro United States economy. Using a national REMI model for FY 2016 and then again for FY 2017 in 2018, Upjohn provided economic impact estimates to MEP. MMTC has asked the Upjohn Institute to create a comparable set of estimates for the state of Michigan using the Center's data for the state. Researchers at Upjohn will use a Michigan-centric REMI model to provide a set of estimates to MMTC that are based in the same methodology used to estimate the national effects.
