The Northern Arizona Manufacturing Partnership was created in 2010 to address the need for representation for this vital sector of the region’s economy. In a region that is challenged with retaining skilled workers, northern Arizona’s manufacturing sector faces unique challenges in filling positions.  It is the mission of NAMP do grow a workforce that can meet industry demands.  

A critical look at the ways that we hire workers is needed.  What has worked in the past doesn’t always work today since a large amount of our workforce is retiring, and there’s a renewed push for reshoring; these thoughts require us to understand the skills gap and how we got here and what our new workforce will look like.

Higher levels of automation in most facilities requires employers to adopt new technologies and training sessions to solve these challenges and embrace new ways of working.

The Greater Flagstaff Chamber works to influence students and young adults to increase positive perceptions of manufacturing and the excitement and culture of the industry to provide high earning potential.
 
Building the talent pipeline for youth, women and the military community is a solution to recruitment challenges and working together with the Chamber and community partners can broaden this link to the workers of tomorrow
