One Connection Point For ALL U.S. Manufacturers

CONNEX Marketplace is the National solution for connecting the U.S. manufacturing supply chain. This online platform combines all US manufacturers into a single database and tags them with hundreds of unique searchable taxonomies which allows industry buyers, manufacturers and material suppliers to quickly find and connect with each other based on their exact needs.

Using search and filter functionality such as equipment, capabilities, services, certifications, location, set-aside suppliers (SBA, minority-owned, women-owned etc.) and so much more, manufacturers are able to quickly locate materials and supplies while buyers are able to quickly find the perfect manufacturer to meet their needs.

CONNEX is tightly integrated with local and regional Partner Networks that support manufacturing.  These include: NAM, NIST MEP, State Manufacturing Associations, State MEPs, 100+ state and regional associations, and many others such as Economic Development Offices, Chambers of Commerce and more!

The combination of an extensive partner network and robust search functionality makes CONNEX the deepest U.S. Manufacturer search platform available!
 

(NOTE:  The search platform is currently comprised of two separate systems. One is called CONNEX which is a state platform implemented directly in many states. The other is called Manufacturers Marketplace and is a national search platform of all U.S. manufacturers. The two platforms are separate for now but, in the near future, will be combined into one robust central platform called CONNEX Marketplace! )
