ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) – Governor Larry Hogan announced a new initiative in Maryland to address supply chain problems in manufacturing.
The Maryland Department of Commerce is kicking off the new initiative in collaboration with the Maryland Manufacturing Expansion Partnership.
“This new program is an innovative way to help manufacturers respond to these challenges and strengthen the resilience of our supply base,” Hogan said in a press release.
The initiative will provide an opportunity for manufacturers in Maryland to learn and share best practices to improve their supply chains, the governor’s office said. It will also help manufacturers weather the current supply chain crisis, improve outcomes and reduce risk. It will help manufacturers connect with local suppliers, customers and partners.
Grants will be provided to provide technical support to manufacturers who have lost sales, revenue, contracts, customers or suppliers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as those manufacturers production with a disrupted workforce or supply chain. Support can range from helping a business identify new markets and supply chain solutions, to export operations, operations training, and adoption and implementation of new technologies.
