Utah Group Wants to Help Manufacturers Improve Bottom Lines
The new Utah Industry Resource Alliance (UIRA) was created to provide Utah manufacturers with a single, expert resource to help them improve their bottom lines. UIRA says it offers industry-specific training, mentoring and coaching, and access to manufacturing specialists, application engineers and research professionals.
The alliance pools the expertise of the University of Utah Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Utah State University’s Manufacturing Extension Service and its Manufacturing and Outdoor Products SUPPORT HUB, iMpact Utah, Utah Manufacturers Association, World Trade Center Utah and the Utah Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Initiative.
“Manufacturing is a vital part of the state’s economy,” said Stephen Reed, director of USU’s Utah Manufacturing Extension Service. “It is essential that manufacturers have access to every tool they need to succeed, grow and thrive. Utah Industry Resource Alliance was founded to provide a united resource for these tools.”
