As the state-wide MEP Center for NYS, FuzeHub often talks about the extensive NYS-funded resources and assets that are available to NYS manufacturers. But did you know that we are a gateway to a national resource pool as part of a much larger, MEP National Network™ with over 400 service locations across all 50 states and Puerto Rico?
This diverse and expansive network is built upon partnerships with public and private entities across the nation including:
- State and local governments,
- Federal agencies, departments, programs and laboratories,
- Universities, community colleges and technical schools,
- Trade associations,
- Professional societies,
- Industry leaders and think tanks,
- Economic development organizations, and
- Private sector firms.
What can the MEP National Network™ do for You?
The MEP National Network™ partners with organizations such as the 14 Manufacturing USA Institutes, U.S. Department of Energy and Department of Defense and a host of federal research labs, to name a few, that offer practical and technical solutions and expertise for critical needs such as:
- Process improvement,
- Workforce development,
- Supply chain integration,
- New product development,
- Innovation and technology solutions,
- Export challenges, and
- Business and operational best practices.
You are not alone in your challenges, and you are not limited by your location – your reach to expertise is much greater than you may realize. In many cases, a manufacturer will be able to receive otherwise expensive technical assistance at low-cost.

FuzeHub serves as a gateway and a bridge to this large national network.
