Meaningful Collaboration & Innovation Are Essential

Manufacturing Exchange - Vermont (MXVT) is managed by VMECbut it's a joint, collaborative effort of many of Vermont's top leaders from business, state government, academia, and non-profit organizations. While it was created in the crucible of responding to the crushing COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic impacting Vermont, our nation and the world, the concepts and strategies behind it have been evolving for years.

Going Forward:

"VMEC will continue to execute its long-standing mission, "To Strengthen and Empower Vermont Manufacturers," by providing systems and solutions to help Vermont manufacturers innovate, plan, perform and grow. We are deeply committed to work with our longstanding and new, willing partners to leverage our collective impact. With agility and perseverance, VMEC will steadfastly remain focused and committed to Vermont's full recovery and new growth - especially for our critical manufacturing industry and ecosystem. Indeed, we are "all in this together." Vermont 2.0 can, and eventually will be, stronger and better than ever!"

~ Bob Zider, VMEC Director & CEO, for the VMEC Team ~
Listen to this 90-second message from Bob Zider, VMEC Director and CEO

Leadership Matters

Vermont has an abundance of talented individuals and entities that are very willing to collaborate and work together. Below are logos of the early - and growing - list of MXVT collaborators. These entities and their innovative people are helping to continuously improve and accelerate use of MXVT across Vermont. Together, we are focusing on improving Communication, Collaboration, and Solving Problems that are both immediate and important to restoring and once again growing Vermont's economy, thereby helping our regional and national economies.

We invite you to work with us!
