The Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance is a network of trusted experts working with manufacturers to help them grow and evolve. When manufacturers are strong, communities prosper and our state’s economy thrives. Since 1992, It is the only statewide organization dedicated to the manufacturing industry, which continues to be the backbone of Oklahoma’s economy.

Our non-profit organization improves companies holistically by assessing, diagnosing, and optimizing operations. Through our proprietary process, a comprehensive plan is developed. Then, we have the capability to deploy our expertise directly. If necessary, we connect to our array of local, state, regional and national networks, providing manufacturers with the exact resources they need to quickly push changes into action.
