Maine MEP names new president

AUGUSTA, Me. - The board of directors of the Maine Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Maine MEP) has announced the promotion of Center Director Larry Robinson to president of Maine MEP effective January 1, 2019, according to Board Chair Carl Spang. Robinson will succeed retiring President Muriel Mosher.

"Maine MEP is pleased to announce the appointment of Larry Robinson as president," Spang stated today. "Since joining the organization as a project manager in 2004, Larry has helped clients achieve more than $30 million in impacts. He has an extensive knowledge of Maine's manufacturing sector and has a proven track record of success."

Robinson has served as Maine MEP's center director since 2012. In that role, he led the Maine MEP field staff in efforts to foster manufacturing innovation and economic growth. He will remain center director while assuming the duties of president. "I look forward to building upon the successful foundation established under Muriel’s leadership on behalf of the manufacturers we serve," stated Robinson.

"Maine MEP's succession planning has ensured that Larry is knowledgeable about the Center and is ready to assume the duties of president," said Spang. "He will be responsible for the strategic vision of Maine MEP, managing the statewide field staff and ensuring that the organization delivers leading-edge programs and services that can help Maine manufacturers achieve world-class performance."

Robinson brought to Maine MEP more than two decades of experience working with leading manufacturers, including as program manager for the international electronics manufacturer Sanmina-SCI and as process engineering group leader at Hussey Seating Company in North Berwick, Maine.

At the University of Southern Maine, Robinson earned a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology and an MBA with a concentration in operations management. He is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Air Command and Staff College with a Master's degree in military operational arts and sciences and has served with distinction for 35 years in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Navy Reserves, including a 2017-18 mobilization to Kuwait. He holds various professional and industry certifications, including Lean Facilitator, Advanced Project Management and Performance Management Facilitator.

Robinson currently serves on the board of the New England Trade Adjustment Assistance Center, and previously served on the Industrial Technology Advisory Board at the University of Southern Maine-School of Technology and the New England Board of Higher Education.

Muriel Mosher has been with Maine MEP for 20 years and helped build support in Congress for a national program

Maine MEP thanks longtime board member Dana Connors for service

AUGUSTA, Me. - Dana Connors, president of the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, recognized for his 19 years of service on the Manufacturing Extension Partnership
(Maine MEP) Board of Directors.

"We appreciate Dana's unflagging support for our mission. Throughout his service, he always understood the value of our program and promoted it at every opportunity," said Muriel Mosher, president of Maine MEP. "We thank him for his service to Maine MEP."

A graduate of the University of Maine, Connors became president of the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, the state's largest business association, in 1994. In that position, he oversees a broad range of activities, including advocacy efforts, economic and workforce initiatives, and a variety of member services for the business community. Connors has received numerous service and leadership awards, including an honorary doctorate from University of Maine and induction into Junior Achievement's Maine Business Hall of Fame.

Maine MEP's board of directors work with the management team to determine the program's vision and mission, engage in strategic planning, approve programs and services, educate legislative and governmental stakeholders, and ensure financial and risk management, among other responsibilities.

Maine MEP Operations Coordinator completes leadership training

AUGUSTA, Me. - Maine Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Maine MEP) today announced that Operations Coordinator Mariah Cunningham-Knaus recently completed the Emerging Leadership program of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NIST MEP). NIST is a program of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Cunningham-Knaus was among 10 class members selected from MEP programs across the country. Each year MEP centers nominate an individual who would benefit from advanced leadership skills. The year-long leadership training program provides an opportunity for participants to conduct in-depth research about critical issues facing manufacturing.

"Maine MEP is proud that Mariah was selected for this year's leadership training program. Her successful completion of the program reflects her commitment to professional growth and will enhance the knowledge that she brings to our clients' manufacturing projects," said Maine MEP President Muriel Mosher.

Cunningham-Knaus's research group surveyed 20 MEP centers to learn about best practices related to small manufacturers. The research holds particular relevance to Maine, since 76 percent of the state's manufactures employ fewer than 20 employees, a larger percentage than in most other states. These small firms are particularly prevalent in important sectors identified with Maine such as craft food producers, machine shops, ship building and high-quality textiles.

At the end of the leadership program, Cunningham-Knaus said her group's project, along with the findings of the other research groups, offered key insights applicable to her work.

"We heard from several centers how online learning has provided flexibility for small manufacturers who are unable to leave their shops to attend trainings," she said. Especially for small manufacturers with 10 or fewer employees, an online option eliminates the prohibitive costs of downtime, transportation to a training or bringing a consultant on-site. As a result of her participation, Maine MEP is exploring new ways to engage small manufacturers.

As operations coordinator, Cunningham-Knaus supports both internal and external field staff with the implementation of projects by providing project support and assistance for assigned projects and ensures all work is conducted in accordance with policies, practices and applicable regulatory requirements. A graduate of the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine, she holds a master's degree in public policy and management, with a concentration in financial management and graduate certificates in nonprofit management and in applied research and evaluation methods.

Maine's Manufacturers Lead the Way

On the first Friday of October, cities, towns and entire states across America recognize National Manufacturing Day. This is a day where we honor the people and businesses that drive local economies, and celebrate the long, proud manufacturing history we share. When folks see 'Made in Maine' they expect - and get - a superior product; from boatbuilding and precision manufacturing to agricultural and forestry, our state is filled with manufacturers that play central roles in creating jobs and supporting urban and rural communities alike.

Our manufacturers aren't just businesses - they're pillars of their communities, supporting jobs and putting down roots. That spirit of truly living within the community is on full display at Tambrands in Auburn, which recently celebrated 50 years of manufacturing here in Maine. For the last half century, Tambrands has been a vital part of our state's economy - and if you ever want to know the secret to why, you just need to visit the facility and see the staff at work. These folks are dedicated, innovative, and bright - they're creating products used around the world, and supporting their local economy in the process.

The fact is that what we build matters to people - people not only in Maine, but across the country and around the globe. There is no better example of that importance than Bath Iron Works. As everyone knows, 'Bath built is best built,' but that slogan isn't tied to the geographic location - it's tied to the men and women of BIW, who represent the best Maine has to offer. They're skilled and hardworking, which is why the Navy continues to turn to BIW for projects vital to our national security. And BIW is far from the only Maine manufacturer that supports our military - for example, Maine-made New Balance shoes are among those issued to service members beginning basic training, ensuring that our military members have high-quality, U.S. made athletic shoes as they are preparing to serve.

Ingenuity is, perhaps, the defining characteristic of our state. As the markets have changed, Maine has changed, and Maine people have adapted to new circumstances and continue to create high-quality products. That innovative spirit is one of the key traits of Maine people, and is a vital tool for our forest products industry as they adapt to shifting market demands. Our state is blessed with vast forests, which for generations have provided the foundation for economic prosperity in our rural communities - but in recent years, the industry has faced mill closures and economic challenges.

As a result, community and industry leaders have joined with government officials at the federal, state, and local level to find new opportunities for our forest products economy. This collaboration resulted in the Forest Opportunity Roadmap Initiative, also known as FOR/Maine. This effort, supported by funding from the Economic Development Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Maine Timberlands Charity Trust, lays out a series of recommendations to grow the forest economy by 40%. This is, in a nutshell, the strength of Maine's manufacturing industry - it is a joint endeavor, bringing together communities and businesses to create the best products and support Maine families. That's what we've always been about, and that spirit will continue for years to come.

Maine MEP's board of directors works with management to determine the program's vision and mission, engages in strategic planning, approves programs and services, educates legislative and governmental stakeholders and ensures financial and risk management, among other tasks.

Larry Robinson, Center Director at Maine Manufacturing Extension Partnership, returns to the Maine MEP after a nine-month military mobilization to the Middle East.

AUGUSTA, ME - Larry Robinson, Center Director at Maine Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Maine MEP), has returned to the Maine MEP after a nine-month military mobilization to the Middle East. Larry was deployed as part of the Combined Joint Task Force, Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR) responsible for the defeat ISIS campaign.

During his mobilization, Larry led an eighty-three person branch consisting of military, government, and private contractors responsible for producing intelligence analysis in support of the campaign.
Mobilizations are long days in a very fast paced, sometimes stressful work environment. Being assigned to the Middle East brought additional unique challenges as well." Robinson said. "With that said, mobilizations do offer professional growth experiences which I'm excited to bring back to the Maine MEP and the clients we serve."
"As a Maine MEP staff member since 2004 and center director since 2012, Robinson has led the organizations efforts to foster manufacturing innovation and economic growth," said Muriel Mosher, Maine MEP president. "Before joining Maine MEP, Robinson worked in the metal fabrication and electronics industries in various engineering and management positions. Larry plans to continue his military service as the Commanding Officer of a U.S. Naval Reserve unit located at FT. Dix, NJ."

New Upjohn Report Release Shows MEP Provides 14.5 to 1 Return to Federal Treasury

Last week, the W.E. Upjohn Institute released a new study that found the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Program generates a substantial economic and financial return of 14.5:1 for the $128 million annually invested by the federal government.

Using the national REMI® model, along with the results from the FY2017 NIST MEP client impact survey conducted by Fors Marsh, the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research study finds that economic returns are substantially higher than previously reported by the MEP program due to broader economic effects. Each year, an independent firm surveys manufacturers regarding the impact they have achieved from MEP Center services. In 2017, MEP clients reported $12.6 billion new and retained sales of which $3.5 billion is new sales providing an economic stimulus of 27 to 1 (based on the $128 million federal investment) and the creation or retention of more than 100,000 jobs. The Upjohn study reports that the $128 million invested in MEP during FY2017 generated a 14.5 to 1 increase in federal personal income tax ($1.86B/$128M federal investment). The study looked solely at personal income tax and not business taxes, and provides a conservative estimate of the return.

In addition, the Upjohn study finds more jobs were generated by the MEP program than directly reported by its clients. The study finds that more than 219,000 additional jobs existed in the U.S because of MEP center projects last year than would have without the program. This estimate includes direct, indirect, and induced jobs generated by MEP projects. These jobs support additional manufacturing jobs critical to U.S. supply chains and jobs outside of manufacturing. Lastly, the Upjohn study also examined additional areas of economic impact not previously reported by the MEP Program; personal income is $13.76 billion higher and GDP is $22.01 billion larger, translating to an increase of $1.86 billion in personal income tax revenue to the federal government than would be reported without the program.

Congressman Michaud in his op-ed titled "President's budget: misplaced priorities," "The Piscataquis Observer," February 13, 2008, edition, "The President's budget also essentially eliminates the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), cutting funding by $87 million below the level needed to maintain current services and providing only $4 million for 2009. MEP provides resources and services to U.S. manufacturers to help create jobs, leverage private-sector investment, and be more competitive. As our economy slows, we should not be cutting funding to programs that create jobs. In fact, we need to be doing everything we can to create and sustain jobs, especially in the he manufacturing sector. This is not a cut that would be good for Maine, especially given the recent layoffs and plant closures."

February 12, 2008
Congressman Allen in his op-ed titled "Bush budget gets no rubber-stamp this year," "The Franklin Journal", February 12, 2008, edition, stated, "For example, under the President's plan, Maine would lose $772,000 in Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program funds, at a loss of an estimated 356 jobs and nearly $15 million in private investments. I have visited scores of small businesses across Maine that have used MEP funds to invest in start up or expansion, creating thousands of good jobs."
