MassMEP Introduces SCALE UP Growth Program for Massachusetts Manufacturers
November 13, 2023 – Auburn, MA – “In 2024, manufacturers will face economic uncertainty, a shortage of skilled labor, supply chain disruptions, and challenges integrating new digital technologies into their operations,” stated Kathie Mahoney, President of MassMEP. To help manufacturers address these issues and more, MassMEP announces SCALE UP, a growth program for Massachusetts manufacturers. Designed to help manufacturers accelerate their businesses, this 4-module training program provides actionable, real-world practices for expanding production-based businesses and increasing revenue.
Led by industry growth expert Chris Ciunci of Skayle 360, SCALE UP delivers a rich mix of actionable frameworks, practical exercises, and a SCALE UP workbook consisting of 15 business templates for manufacturers to apply to their own businesses. The program focuses on (a) business planning (strategy, business model, and unique selling proposition), (b) building your team (recruitment and retention), (c) winning customers (branding, channel development, and lead generation), and (d) leveraging AI.
Kathie Mahoney, MassMEP President, expressed her enthusiasm: “The SCALE UP training is designed to help manufacturers find new ways to drive top-line growth and win more business. Through the training, manufacturers will find a structured pathway to unearth growth opportunities and find solutions to the everyday challenges preventing them from reaching their growth potential.”
Chris Ciunci of Skayle 360 remarked, “Drawing from my two decades of experience architecting growth strategies for manufacturers, the SCALE UP program is more than just theory; it’s a practical training roadmap for growth. The collaboration with MassMEP emphasizes our commitment to robust, steady top-line growth for Massachusetts manufacturers. I look forward to working closely with Kathie and the MassMEP team to help ensure small and mid-sized manufactures realize their full potential.”
The program is designed for any size manufacturing organization. For manufacturers with fewer than 100 employees, the SCALE UP training is eligible for express training grants, ensuring 100% reimbursement.
