Mainebiz Publication

Mainebiz is working with the Manufacturers Association of Maine to target tomorrow’s manufacturing workforce by distributing Stuff Made in Maine both in print and as a digital edition.

Stuff Made in Maine is a recruitment tool for Maine manufacturers to highlight the employment opportunities they offer both entry-level and experienced workers to develop a successful career with their company. And, it’s a great resource for educators and students to find out about the diverse career opportunities that the manufacturing sector has to offer in Maine.

Mainebiz’s goal is to help improve the image of the state’s manufacturers and develop their workforce with Stuff Made in Maine — a special publication that gives manufacturers an engaging format to tell their story and showcase what they make right here in Maine.
