Our Goal is Simple Yet Impactful:
To Advance Georgia Manufacturing
Through onsite implementation, training, events, peer-to-peer learning, and connections to partners and resources we work with more than 800 manufacturers each year to help manufacturing leaders and their teams achieve sustainable growth and long-term success. We do this by:
- Understanding the current state of your teams, leadership, and company.
- Learn about your future goals and business plan.
- Teach your team to utilize tools and strategies to meet the needs of your organization.
- Connect your company with other resources available at Georgia Tech and our partner organizations.
- Advance your company’s competitiveness and ensure a sustainable future for manufacturing in Georgia.
GaMEP will come to your plant and customize projects to meet your organizational needs. Our project managers will not only help you implement solutions, but also teach you how to replicate the process for the future, ensuring results for years to come.
GaMEP’s open-enrollment training courses allow manufacturers to train one or a few people from your plant on a variety of topics related to operations, including process-improvement efforts; quality; ISO management systems in energy, environmental, and quality; safety; technology; employee training; and more. Then the knowledge can be transferred to other team members for larger implementation at your plant.
We also offer our open-enrollment and additional training courses in an on-site format to train larger groups from your company. For more information on how to bring these courses to your facility, contact your region manager.
GaMEP offers events across the state of Georgia, including a series of two-hour lunch-and-learn events on a variety of topics designed to provide actionable tips and tools for manufacturers to utilize in their plants.
If you are interested in learning from other manufacturers in Georgia, GaMEP offers two types of peer-to-peer groups in 10 regions throughout the state. The Advanced Manufacturing Consortium helps manufacturers advance their knowledge and use of Lean tools, while CEO Roundtables provide manufacturing leaders a private, secure forum to contribute, listen, and learn from other manufacturing leaders and each other.
Connections to Georgia Tech Resources
GaMEP is a program at Georgia Tech and is part of the MEP National Network. Through our connections at Georgia Tech, our partners and resources across the state, and our relationships with national labs and our network of MEP centers, we provide manufacturers across Georgia with connections to fuel their growth, advance U.S. manufacturing, and impact economic growth locally, regionally, and statewide.
