The New Mexico Small Business Assistance (NMSBA) program, a collaboration of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Sandia National Laboratories and the state of New Mexico, received the 2012 Manufacturing Advocate of the Year award from the Manufacturing Extension Partnership under the U.S. Department of Commerce.
The award was presented in May at the 2012 Manufacturing Innovation conference in Orlando, Fla. for “commitment to the business growth and transformation of U.S.–based manufacturing through work in the manufacturing sector.”
The NMSBA was specifically recognized for the significant impact the laboratories’ technical assistance program makes in helping drive new product innovation among New Mexico small businesses and contributing to state economic growth.
“The external recognition is an important validation for the work we do to support local businesses, promote economic development and create jobs here in New Mexico,” said LANL’s Community Programs Office Director Kurt Steinhaus. “As a laboratory, we see our investment in small business technical support as integral to building regional partnerships to promote a strong, vibrant, local community.”
