The North American Advanced Manufacturing Research and Education Initiative (NAAMREI) has completed phase one of its plan to help south-Texas manufacturers rapidly turn ideas into finished products, with the April 11 opening of the Rapid Response Manufacturing Center at The University of Texas-Pan American, in Edinburg, TX.
NAAMREI is an alliance of 60 business, education, economic development, industry, finance and government partners in south Texas. Its new manufacturing center will recruit and train the skilled workforce needed to create an advanced manufacturing infrastructure. Ultimately, NAMMREI hopes to tie together more than 41 industrial parks across the region.
