Manufacturing Growth Alliance (MGA), established in 2019, is a membership-based organization that helps over 2,500 Michigan manufacturers build smart, lead strong, and establish a pathway for future growth.
Since its inception, MGA has had a pulse on the needs of Michigan manufacturers, which often means shifting priorities. We are committed to providing our members with the knowledge, network, strategic guidance, and access to resources they need so they can lead their organization to lasting growth.
MGA is the only trade association in the state focused on supporting small to medium sized manufacturers, because we understand that their needs differ from large manufacturers. We are committed to listening and building the right level of services to help manufacturers with internal operations and strategic growth. We aim to make Michigan’s manufacturers the most prosperous and competitive in the nation.
MGA is accelerating the future for Michigan Manufacturers.
Small to medium-sized manufacturers are the lifeblood of Michigan’s economy. As the largest sector in Michigan, making up 19% of the overall economic output, manufacturers take risks, create jobs, and make the things that keep Michigan running.
Over 85% of Michigan manufacturers are considered small to medium-sized operations. Without organizations like MGA that are focused on supporting them, we could easily see that number decline as many struggle with second-stage growing pains. Without manufacturers and the next generation of manufacturers, Michigan’s communities would look vastly different. For us to continue to support the growth of these organizations we need Champions like you that believe in a future where Michigan’s manufacturers can grow to become some of the most competitive in the nation.
