Welcome to Manufacturing Rhode Island

Manufacturing Rhode Island is a dedicated business resource for manufacturers, makers and others interested in products being created and produced in the Ocean State.  It is provided by the Rhode Island Manufacturing Collaborative, a public/private partnership composed of Rhode Island business development organizations, including the John H. Chafee Center for International Business at Bryant University, the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation (Commerce RI), the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association (RIMA), and Polaris MEP.

The objectives of Manufacturing Rhode Island are to:
