The manufacturing landscape of our state has changed significantly over the last 25 years, and MMEC has been a partner working side by side with manufacturers through it all. We’ve watched as very large natural resource manufacturing operations gave way to a wave of entrepreneurship, high-tech manufacturing and value-added agriculture manufacturing. These new industries along with our traditional manufacturers have diversified Montana’s economy and reduced the chance of economic recession.
- Montana supplies more organic crops than any other state in the nation.
- Farmers and ranchers grow a plethora of raw products such as barley, wheat, seeds, etc.
- To process these ag products, they were shipped out of state, and the producers would only receive about 14 cents on the dollar profit.
