MMA To Unveil New “Buy Local” Web Site

The Michigan Manufacturers Association, the Jackson Area Manufacturers Association and the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center plan Tuesday to unveil a new Web site designed to connect Michigan manufacturing buyers and sellers.

The Web site, www.mfg.com/michigan, was developed by MFG.com, the largest global online sourcing marketplace for manufacturers, and is intended to help Michigan manufacturers “Buy Local” and be more competitive.

The launch of the Michigan based MFG.com Web site has been scheduled in conjunction with Michigan Manufacturing Week May 8-14.

A press conference unveiling the new site is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday at Michigan State University’s James Henry Center for Executive Development at 3535 Forest Road in Lansing, the site of the 2011 MMA CEO & Executive conference, which is the signature event of Michigan Manufacturing Week.

Manufacturing executives who will be gathering from across the state to attend this annual event will be the first to learn of the new portal, prior to the formal statewide announcement.
