Manufacturing workers enjoy the best job security in the private sector and help improve the overall economy. The New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) is working to bring certifications and training to New Mexico. This initiative will equip people with great jobs as well as help the manufacturing industry employ qualified workers.
The New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) wants to ensure that New Mexico has a pro-business environment for manufacturing. That’s why we are working on tax-reform, energy and economic incentives but we also understand the importance of having skilled workers ready to enter the New Mexican manufacturing industry.
NMBC sees a dire need in our state to help people find great job opportunities, as well as resolve the manufacturing industry's need for qualified workers. It is important to educate kids, teenagers and young adults about the career opportunities the manufacturing industry can provide.
During the month of October, we will be promoting Manufacturing Month in New Mexico. Check out Marpac Custom who will be hosting a manufacturing tour on October 17th, 2017.
