MAME is Your Manufacturing Career Connection

You spoke! We heard! This is our strategy to help the industry attract and retain skilled employees! We are dedicated to helping Maine employers find the talent they need to stay competitive.

Nearly 72% of Maine manufacturers can’t find the skilled workers they need. The Manufacturing Career Connection program will raise the profile of manufacturing in Maine and share some of the sector’s best kept secrets.

Manufacturing Month…and all year long!

Manufacturing Month…and all year long! October in Manufacturing Month in Maine. MAME kicks off the month with a series of manufacturing tours as part of MFGDAY. Not to worry, though, if MFGDAY (the first Friday every October) doesn’t work for you. We host these tours all year long. You can sign up anytime! Thanks to a grant from Pratt & Whiteny, MAME is able to offset some of the transportation costs to help get students out to tours! Contact MAME for more details. MAME ends the month with our Annual Gala where we recognize someone who has gone Above & Beyond in support of manufacturing. More information here.
