Urban Manufacturing Alliance

SFMade is a charter member of the Urban Manufacturing Alliance, a network of similar organizations in other major US cities dedicated to the development of urban manufacturing. The UMA creates a platform for cities to exchange best practices about key areas including land use planning; regional supply chains; and workforce development. Members of the UMA gather annually for a Convening and participate in Affinity Groups to advance ideas about supporting urban manufacturing.

State of Local Manufacturing
The annual State of Local Manufacturing is SFMade’s central policy output, released each year at a high-level breakfast event in November. The report reveals the results of our annual survey of local manufacturers and shares the sector’s impact, trends, opportunities and challenges.
