MAP Membership Pays!

The region’s most successful manufacturers belong to the Manufacturing Alliance of Philadelphia. They've made MAP successful, because working together through MAP has helped make them successful. Here are a few reasons why membership pays:

Here are a dozen reasons why membership pays:

1) Access to Grant & Loan Programs
Access to Grant & Loan Programs There are grants out there for manufacturing. There are extremely low-interest loans too. Government sometimes does a good job of inadvertently keeping beneficial programs a secret. Need new equipment, a new building, help with the cost of a trade show, cash to upgrade employee skills?

These are just a few of the available programs.

Let us know what you need. What a great way to off-set your small investment in MAP dues!

2) Legislative Support and Government Watch
Legislative Support and Government Watch MAP is the only association continually doing a threat assessment for manufacturing by watching what's going on in both local and state government. We watch and we fight. Fighting bad legislation on your own can sometimes paint a big target on you and your company.

Let MAP do the fighting for you. We will regularly keep you up to date on what's going on around the region.

3) Networking
Your MAP membership makes you part of a family of the most successful and accomplished manufacturers in the region. The network you develop through MAP - at plant tours, breakfast meetings with political leaders and through other opportunities - can pay off big.

One good idea picked up over coffee at a MAP event can pay your dues for years.

4) Employment & Training Services
MAP maintains a full inventory of trained manufacturing workers looking for a good company. We advertise, we screen and sort resumes, we find the applicant you’re looking for and present them to you. It's that easy.... and your time is no longer wasted with the hassles of filling a position. Members pay a small fee for this service, non-members slightly more.

We also help you find things like training grants and employment tax credits!

5) MAP Online Directory of Manufacturers
This is one of the most heavily visited sections of our website. Customers looking for manufacturers use this search function continuously. You can too! Join MAP and be there when potential customers come looking.

6) Certified Vendors
We've put together a collection of products and services that are unique to manufacturing. Need a bank that understands credit lines? Or a CPA who understands inventory and production costs?

We have carefully screened and certified a number of vendors, based upon their experience with manufacturing. Everything from employment and labor law to software programs - look into your certified vendors!

7) We're Your Connection to Political Leaders & Government Agencies
MAP helps companies connect with government officials and political leaders through breakfast meetings, working groups which include political staff and agency officials. We help government understand your needs so they can serve you better. And… the time to find a friend in government isn’t when you need one!

8) Exclusive Member Only Benefits©
Individual and group healthcare and dental plans and worker’s compensation Insurance. Retirement and savings planning, pre-paid legal and identity theft protection services and discounts on generic and brand prescriptions. Also affinity programs: enjoy energy savings through MAP’s group energy purchase, save on UPS shipping and purchases at Office Depot.

9) New Opportunities
MAP is in the loop - when it comes to opportunities for its members. We get direct leads from government trade offices and from overseas companies looking to purchase products or partner with local manufacturers. We can help with finding land to expand your operations because we are among the first to find out about availabilities. There are any number of ways we can help you connect with opportunity and because you are a member — you get this information before anyone else!

Our members prosper!
