The Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Initiative

Strengthening regional connections, growing regional manufacturing

With its position at the epicenter of technology, design, and innovation, the Bay Area has the potential to shape the future of manufacturing. We must work together to ensure that our region seizes this opportunity to retain and create middle-class jobs for a more equitable Bay Area.

Join us. Be part of the resurgent Bay Area manufacturing economy.
