Economic Impact

The Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance, as part of the national Manufacturing Extension Partnership, is continuously reviewed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology to ensure a high return on investment. In fact, the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance is routinely among the most effective MEP centers nationwide.

Most importantly, the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance delivers a high return on investment to its partners and stakeholders. As an example, over the past four years for every dollar of state and federal investment, the Manufacturing Alliance generated $24 in new sales growth and $16 in new plant and equipment investment. This translates into $212 million in sales growth and $107 million in bottom-line earnings. During this time, the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance created and retained more than 6,100 high-wage jobs in the state while engaging on average 900 manufacturers each year.
