We offer supplier enhancement services to small and medium sized (SMB) businesses in North Carolina. Organizations who are developing suppliers or seeking to become an effective vendor to their customers can leverage the NCMEP network for connecting and benchmarking opportunities.

Especially beneficial to SMB manufacturers, the Manufactured in North Carolina (MNC) program provides opportunities for companies to more fully develop their supply chains and identify potential buyers for their products.  Additionally, IES maintains a manufacturing network to fill a need, often expressed by manufacturers, that they had no idea who manufactured near them. This enables the state’s manufacturers opportunities to share operational best practices, connect with peers, locate supply chains and promote growing manufacturing industries in North Carolina.
