NYC Manufacturing & Product Development Asset Map

Manufacturing has long been a key sector in New York City’s economy.

Despite the industry’s importance for quality job creation, the local contract manufacturing ecosystem remains largely opaque. To help establish a more robust asset map of the NYC regional manufacturing and product development landscape, ITAC and Urbane Development have developed a brief survey designed to illuminate existing capacity to serve both startups and established businesses, in addition to highlighting market opportunities and gaps.

Information gathered through the survey will support manufacturers in connecting to business opportunities, local suppliers and strategic partners.
