Statewide IRC Centers
NWIRC is one of seven private, non-profit Industrial Resource Centers located strategically throughout the Commonwealth. These Centers were established to help small- and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises (under 500 employees) respond to changing markets, new technology and the competitive pressures of today's global economy. All seven centers share a mission to help the commonwealth's manufacturers envision where they want to be and assist them to get there.
The Centers strive to keep the manufacturing sector strong, help it grow by assisting manufacturers with improved bottom line strategies - productivity enhancement and waste elimination, as well as with top line growth by supporting strategic initiatives - new and improved products, market differentiation and workforce development strategies.
