MESA for Manufacturers & Producers*

Member TestimonialManufacturers and producers from around the world join MESA because of our trusted education and networking programs that help save time, money, and resources. MESA helps companies prepare for a digitally-competitive future. We educate and collaborate about best practices, trends, strategy and problem solving. 

Membership in MESA helps Manufacturers/Producers:

  • Achieve solid business results from Smart Manufacturing technology solutions because they were properly engineered and correctly specified from project inception.

  • Obtain functionality and solutions that drive ROI from Smart Manufacturing projects while increasing system flexibility in their organizations. This benefit is especially driven from personnel being able to understand and apply the best practices that MESA has peer-reviewed.

  • Reduce staff support costs on each project because personnel and delivery partner(s) were able to be on the same page using MESA's key terms and best practice methodologies. 

  • Specify and purchase best-of-breed IT solutions designed to their specific operating requirements. Education from MESA helps manufacturers understand how to contribute to the design of the installation, along with obtaining the proper buy-in to the new solutions that are specific to their roles, responsibilities, and departments.
