How do you address a looming skills gap in workforce, inspire meaningful cross-sector community collaboration, and spur regional economic development by strengthening its manufacturing industry?
San Joaquin Valley Manufacturing Alliance (SJVMA) is an industry-led alliance launched in 2016 to build a manufacturing epicenter in Central California. Our primary goal is to strengthen regional manufacturing by building a world-class workforce and developing resources to help our existing manufacturing businesses thrive. We believe that by building relationships and collaboration amongst our private enterprise, government and education sectors, we can strengthen the region’s manufacturers and demonstrate that the Valley is the ideal location for manufacturing in California, and a globally competitive manufacturing environment. With these goals, we believe we can contribute significantly to the economic development of the San Joaquin Valley.
