The MTRC is New York State’s only campus-based Manufacturing Extension Partnership
Center (MEP) serving biotechnology and manufacturing firms on Long Island—and we offer
so much more than a standard MEP.
The MTRC helps companies assess their needs, define projects, and match them with
experts for: technology assistance, research and development, prototyping, workforce
training and process improvement, as well as the adoption and evaluation of new manufacturing
Manufacturing companies are complex. In order to succeed, companies need strong skills
in organization and leadership, supply chain, planning and distribution, manufacturing
processes, and managing productivity, quality, information and data. At small- and
medium-sized firms, it might be challenging to manage all of those needs in-house.
The MTRC can supply talented resources, direction, and in some cases, even funding
to assist a manufacturer with short and long-term project needs.

There is no fee paid to MTRC. When you work with the MTRC, we’ll assess your project’s
needs and propose a solution involving one of our partners. If you choose to engage
in a project, the company is responsible for a portion of the proposed budget of that
project. Each project is unique and the percentage the company would be responsible for will vary accordingly. We will also help you explore additional grant opportunities to help offset any costs.
