Massachusetts is home to world-class makers of everything from machinery to biopharmaceuticals to jet engines. Manufacturing output is at its highest level in history and accounts for more than 11 percent of the state’s economy.  Massachusetts products are sold nationally and worldwide ($27 billion in global exports in 2011).

AIM provides a one-stop resource for manufacturers with updates on public-policy issues, discussion of best practices, and education in advanced productivity methods. The objective - ensure that manufacturing and the jobs it provides remains a key element of life in Massachusetts.

Manufacturing Day
Manufacturing Day addresses common misconceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is and what it isn’t. By working together during and after Manufacturing Day, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.
