Become a Manufacturing Member


Every business owner needs to have someone in their corner. Someone that will fiercely advocate for them and present them with opportunities to position their organization for long-term growth. That is why Manufacturing Growth Alliance (MGA) was created. MGA is the only organization championing the growth of small to mid-sized manufacturers in the state with the goal of making them the most competitive and prosperous in the nation. 


MGA is committed to providing its members with leadership expertise, peer to peer learning, access to capital, technical support, training, talent recruitment, and more that will keep them at the forefront of their industry and are pivotal to the sustainability of their businesses. A full list of membership benefits is provided below. Join MGA as a member today to experience the immediate impact our team of experts and strategic partners will have on your business.


       The MGA has been an invaluable resource since joining a few months ago, and the benefits far outweigh the investment. Not only is it affordable, but it’s also provided us with many tools and opportunities to collaborate as we’ve worked to grow our business. The manufacturing cohort retreat was truly one of the highlights of my year, and helped create a peer group of talented and accomplished leaders that I will consult for years to come as we chart our course and navigate our journey.


As an added benefit, the SIG program opened up a world of expertise and mentorship that any entrepreneur would dream of having at their disposal. I wish I had found them ten years ago, but I’m happy to know I can turn to them in the future."
