This fall, Association of Manufacturers Bay Area (AMBayArea) launched the new AMBayArea Cornerstone Partnership providing companies with the opportunity to support Bay Area manufacturing and receive year-round recognition and exposure for their brand.

AMBayArea is dedicated to supporting Bay Area manufacturers, and the Cornerstone Partnership offers manufacturers and service providers the opportunity to be part of the core foundation in AMBayArea’s work to help manufacturing thrive in the Bay Area. 

Cornerstone Partners will gain brand visibility and access to the manufacturing community throughout the year while supporting manufacturing, which accounts for more than 9% of Bay Area employment. Cornerstone Partners are vital to AMBayArea’s workforce development efforts, which include skilled trades student scholarships, job fairs, Ambassador Program, apprenticeship and internships, MFG Day events, and more.
