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.

The objective of workforce development is to create economic prosperity for individuals, businesses, and communities. … In other words, workforce development trains individuals to be more productive and prosperous in the workplace, which benefits both the employer and the worker.

NAMC training is only possible through a collaborative effort between our business partners. Our business partners are made up of manufacturing companies from the northeast of Massachusetts who are committed to improving the region’s advanced manufacturing pipeline.

NAMC’s business partners, with our educational partners, work to develop strategies, funding, and resources to provide manufacturing employers with a skilled workforce while creating a sustainable living for these workers.
