Together, We Can Grow Manufacturing

Why GMI?

Because we believe the most effective way to grow our local manufacturing sector is to form partnerships. We partner with companies, organizations, and individuals who understand the industry and know how to get things done. Together, we create jobs and strengthen our communities here in the North State.

One Hour. Unlimited Posibilities.
