Supplier Scouting

Manufacturer’s Edge is here to help you with every aspect of your Supplier Scouting needs. The first step is to set up your company profile on the Sustainment platform and take advantage of their robust mapping and sourcing capabilities that have led to numerous meaningful connections for manufacturers in the state of Colorado and across the country.

Moving beyond the Sustainment platform, Manufacturer’s Edge and the MEP National Network also offer two additional services. One is for those looking for new suppliers and one is for companies interested in becoming a supplier.

Do you need to source key parts?

Find a Supplier

As the MEP Center for Colorado, Manufacturer’s Edge is able to offer Colorado manufacturers supplier scouting services at no cost. Supplier Scouting leverages the MEP National Network’s extensive relationships to identify manufacturers across the U.S. who can meet supply chain needs of commercial entities and government agencies. To engage with the Network’s Supplier Scouting service, a company or government agency needs to have a clear and concise description of the item(s) being sought, as well as detailed information about the supply opportunity’s business case.

We are here to help you find local and domestic suppliers. Simply fill out the form below to answer some questions about your requirements, and we will post your opportunity nationwide, all free of charge to you.
