Ken Poole and John Marotta traveled to Dallas, Texas to meet with NIST-MEP system partners from around the country to evaluate the latest trends and challenges in the field.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a measurement standards laboratory, which is a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce. The institute’s official mission is to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life.

Since 1988, the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) has been committed to strengthening U.S. manufacturing, continually evolving to meet the changing needs of manufacturers. MEP’s strategic objective is to create value for all manufacturers, with a particular focus on small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs).
