State/National Network


IMEC specialists are strategically team-based near Illinois population centers and in high-density manufacturing regions. Most clients are within a two hour drive of one of our office locations.

To meet the needs of manufacturers, IMEC assists manufacturers directly, leverages pre-qualified service providers, or draws from a pool of nearly 1,300 manufacturing experts from Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) centers nationwide.
