We're the ESD Designated Regional MEP Center for Long Island.
MTRC is Empire State Development's Regional Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) center for the Long Island region. We are one of the ten centers within the NIST NY-MEP program, with FuzeHub being the state-wide MEP center.
MTRC is designed to assist small to medium-sized manufacturing companies develop business growth and increase competitiveness through training, workforce development, and/or revitalization/renewal of their product lines all while supporting our region's priority industry cluster: biotechnology.
The MTRC maintains a consortium of program partner resources from within the university such as: the Centers of Excellence, Centers for Advanced Technology, the Center for Corporate Education and it’s subset the Center for Operational Excellence, the Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence, and the regional Small Business Development Centers; and external partners such as the Composite Prototyping Center, and a group of potential training partners from Farmingdale State College, Nassau Community College, the New York Institute of Technology and Suffolk Community College. Each of these organizations have a working relationship with company clients in the Manufacturing and Technology sectors and carries out projects with them to improve some aspect of their business. We look to these program partners to develop project contracts, hold workshops, etc. that are common to both our and their mission and support the efforts through cost-sharing.
The metrics calculated via third-party client survey, post-project, are economic impact, revenue increases and jobs created and retained.
