The funding was awarded to the New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program, Inc., a not-for-profit company based in Morris Plains that specializes in delivering technical and business assistance to manufacturers across the state.

“This funding will help many of New Jersey’s smaller manufacturers realize more of their potential through the NJMEP’s innovative programs and initiatives,” said U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ).

“Manufacturers are an important part of New Jersey’s economy, and this federal funding will help local companies create jobs and expand their manufacturing capacity,” added U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ). “This grant will help New Jersey manufacturers improve their production processes, and is an example of a smart federal investment that will help local businesses innovate and strengthen our economy.”

The NJMEP is one of 59 MEPs across the United States.
