CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - As Wyoming looks to grow its business sector, local manufacturers can play a vital role.

The Connex is a collaborative effort among State partners and manufacturing works housed under the National Institute of Standards and Technology, making Connex a resource to grow manufacturing in Wyoming and the U.S.

Connex Wyoming is free for two months to initial subscribers thanks to partnerships between the State of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council, the University of Wyoming’s Office of Research and Economic Development, and Manufacturing Work online.

Manufacturing Works is a part of the Business Resource Network at the University of Wyoming. Connex is an online supply chain database that allows Wyoming manufacturers to strengthen their supply chain, connect, be discovered and increase business. Members can post and respond to needs, and supply chain risk, as well as find qualified manufacturers, and learn about Wyoming networks.

The platform will launch on Sept. 29 and is open to Wyoming manufacturers to participate.

“There are opportunities right here in Wyoming for students to get very well paying jobs, in their home state if they look hard. I want to open the eyes of Wyomingites to the really neat things that are happening in manufacturing,” says Rocky Case, Center Director of Manufacturing at the University of Wyoming.

This manufacturing initiative is to encourage manufacturers to keep manufacturers local.
