Mission Statement

The Alaska Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Inc. is committed to developing the state’s economy through the provision of technical, business and economic training and assistance to Alaska’s small manufacturers and to rural Alaskans producing, marketing, and distributing Native art and other home-based manufactured products.

AMEP staff and regional partners play a unique role helping rural Alaska home-based businesses and artists to expand into new markets using the Internet. This empowers the local artisans and manufacturers to work directly with customers, rather than relying on layers in the distribution channel.

AMEP fills a unique niche in the Alaska economic development system by:

  • Connecting rural communities with distant markets through E-Commerce. This gives artisans and home-based manufacturers higher profit margins, more control over their business and greater customer feedback.

  • Strengthening collaboration between existing economic development organizations. AMEP matches the needs of existing manufacturers with local, statewide and national experts to solve their business challenges. This system is a locally-centered, needs-driven, bottom-up method of delivering business assistance.
