NAMC built its reputation as the “go-to” resource for training job-seekers and incumbent workers in the skills valued by advanced manufacturers in northeastern Massachusetts.

The Northeast Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (NAMC) started as an initiative among four workforce investment board directors to form a partnership among industry, academia, and workforce development established to promote sustained support for manufacturing within the Northeast of Massachusetts. Northeast manufacturers are world-class companies that are an essential part of the state’s innovation economy. Manufacturing has a legacy in the Northeast of Massachusetts and we seek to advocate for a thriving advanced manufacturing industry. We have brought together a coalition of private and public entities to leverage funding and develop programming to meet our goals. NAMC also supports youth outreach to create interest in manufacturing careers and the development of training programming.

What We Do

NAMC works to develop the regional workforce pipeline that will provide the skilled employees necessary for advanced manufacturing to remain globally competitive, long into the future.

To this end, the consortium leverages a wealth of local, state, and national resources. We provide a forum for sharing information and ideas that serve to support workforce needs of Massachusetts employers in the manufacturing industry. There is no cost to join, and your level of involvement is up to you.
