SHOW OFF YOUR MARYLAND
MD MEP’s new Proud to Make It In Maryland campaign is part of our larger Make It In Maryland initiative, designed to promote manufacturing and tell the stories of the manufacturers who are proud to call Maryland home. Currently there are more than 4,000 manufacturers in Maryland that employ more than 110,000 workers state-wide that contribute nearly $25billion to our state GDP. As an industry we need to do better to ensure our legislators, friends, stakeholders and the communities we live and work in understand the importance of manufacturing to Maryland’s economy and to our future.
The Proud to Make It In Maryland campaign will allow us to collectively demonstrate our commitment to manufacturing in Maryland and to share images, videos and examples that showcase the breadth and diversity of the manufacturers in our state.
WHAT IS IT?
The Proud to Make It In Maryland is a social media campaign to highlight manufacturers and tell the story of manufacturing in Maryland. MD MEP’s goal is to get a Proud to Make it in Maryland banner hanging in every manufacturing facility in Maryland! Photos, images and stories will be shared through social media platforms and other media channels to raise the level of awareness of manufacturing in Maryland.

Any manufacturer that has a valid manufacturing NAICS code, and a physical manufacturing facility with at least 1 employee located anywhere in Maryland.
