Representatives from MassMEP and MassRobotics met with Riptide last week to discuss their current and future manufacturing needs as they ramp up operations to be able to support larger orders.  MassMEP is an affiliate of the NIST Manufacturing Extension Program  that provide small and midsize manufacturers with the public and private resources needed to jumpstart growth, improve productivity, and expand capacity. The consultation they provide is at no charge as part of the Advanced Manufacturing Futures Program grant won by a team including MassTLC, MassRobotics and MassMEP.
