“Connex New Jersey has really proven to be attractive to ‘MADE in NJ’ manufacturers. Its ability to help these businesses become more visible in the pursuit of new clients or even secure state and federal contracts are just some of the benefits. Businesses can even run background checks on their current suppliers to make sure they are not on any blacklists. This is especially helpful for any manufacturers that want to be part of the DoD or are currently working as a DoD supplier,” explained Peter Connolly, CEO, NJMEP. He continued, “With the massive amount of interest, over 480 manufacturing businesses signing up in the first 60 days, we had to extend the sponsorship. We need our New Jersey manufacturers to be able to fend off supply chain disruptions in the future to create a more resilient domestic manufacturing industry.”

“For manufacturers in New Jersey, registering for the National Supply Chain Registry solidifies a link between firms and beneficial opportunities at no cost to them. Not only will this registry continue to deliver work opportunities for New Jerseyans across the state, it will also increase our supply chain resiliency,” said Sen. Menendez. “I am proud to have had a hand in providing this critical, multi-use tool for ‘MADE in NJ’ manufacturing firms to ensure a larger number of small and medium-sized firms are more visible, secure and competitive.”

“Aligned with Governor Murphy’s vision to bolster New Jersey’s manufacturing sector, this database will help ensure our manufacturers are stronger, more prepared, and better protected during future supply chain disruptions,” said New Jersey Economic Development Authority Chief Executive Officer Tim Sullivan. “Additionally, the database will help connect businesses across the state to large-scale opportunities in offshore wind, technology, life sciences, and other industries critical to our economy. I commend NJMEP for their commitment to supporting manufacturers and encourage every firm to register for the National Supply Chain Registry before the August 31st deadline.”
