Welcome to the Made in Tennessee website, where we celebrate and connect Tennessee manufacturers!

Manufacturing is an integral part of Tennessee’s economy. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, the industry accounts for nearly 15 percent of the state’s total output and employs 11.4 percent of its workforce.

The UT Center for Industrial Services would like to highlight the importance of manufacturing in the state and is proud to launch the Made in Tennessee program! The goal of the program is to support the Volunteer State’s manufacturing community by raising awareness of their products and providing resources to help them grow!
