New Sales Training and Website Service Offerings Start 6/1/2020

When products are in high demand, many small to medium sized manufacturers find it challenging to focus on sales strategies or how to best implement them. Web development and SEO can also fall to the lower end of the priority list. If these important aspects of business are not integrated into an effective process, a company can quickly fall behind in the market and be left struggling to remain competitive. Recognizing these obstacles, NHMEP will begin offering three new services to manufacturing companies starting Monday, June 1st.

They had the people, space and capabilities ready to work, so they decided to produce face shields. For their first production run of 10,000, they bought the materials they could find like elastic and foam, then received a generous donation of plastic materials from a producer in Biddeford, ME in exchange for a donation of 3,000 face shields to go back to Maine’s community of first responders and hospitals. They agreed, and decided to donate all of the face shields they assembled.
