Business acceleration through technology

The pace of advancement for enabling technologies that are intertwined with traditional manufacturing processes is accelerating at lightning speed. Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMT) – like additive manufacturing, robotics, and digital manufacturing and design – are equipping today’s manufacturers to take their operational performance to the next level. Whether through rapid prototyping to speed product development, automating a mundane assembly task to free up your people for more value-added work, or augmented reality work instruction applications to speed training and gather critical operational data, we can help guide you through the nearly limitless ways new tech can directly impact your bottom line.

Are Manufacturer’s Edge services free?

Our services are not free - as Colorado’s official Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Center, our access to grants and funds are reliant on a 1-to-1 match to our clients’ investments. These additional funds can effectively double your investment and give you access to our world-class consultants, trainers, and resources, as well as a committed and dedicated partnership from ME to ensure effective implementation of our plans and long-term maintenance for your business.

Does Manufacturer’s Edge only work with manufacturing companies?

While we specialize in manufacturing, the concepts and practices that we employ are applicable to all businesses. In fact, we have had numerous impactful engagements with healthcare organizations, dairies, government entities, and more.
