Welcome to Kansas City Manufacturing Network
The Resource for Manufacturers to Grow and Improve their Businesses
Kansas City Manufacturing Network is the central resource for manufacturing company managers and owners who are working to grow and improve their businesses across many functional areas.
Sharing knowledge and experience with other manufacturers can increase business opportunities and expand your resources. A well-rounded base of contacts can accelerate your company’s response to changes in business or manufacturing technologies and provide you with access to the best supporting services and resources.
* Regular breakfast meetings or events highlighting a topic of importance to manufacturers
* Plant Tours of local manufacturing facilities
* Access to resources, both local and state, that specialize in serving the manufacturing business community
* Networking opportunities to meet and exchange information with other manufacturers and industry resources
* Opportunities to meet suppliers and customers, in a non-threatening setting
* Manufacturers can access Lean Support, Workforce, EHS, and Leadership Development Groups
* Annual networking event with other manufacturing focused groups in August.
Mid-America Manufacturing Technology Center and Missouri Enterprise are our NIST Network Affiliate Sponsors. We welcome all regional manufacturers to join us to learn from others, share best practices, and get involved with the manufacturing community in the region.
How we choose our meeting topics:
Our manufacturing company member advisory board, as well as member suggestions, drive our topic selection. Topics chosen are generally those of interest to operations professionals and focus on technical topics with a management viewpoint. We differentiate ourselves from many other groups by presenting manufacturers talking to manufacturers vs ‘the expert at the front of the room’ at most meetings. We feature panel discussions, case studies and plant tours as a way to share best practices and lessons learned. See our events page to learn more about past and future meeting topics.
Guest Attendance Policy:
Guests may attend 2 meetings before we ask that you join as a member. Member fees support KCMN administration and help us to continue to grow and expand member benefits.
