The Great Plains TMC is an initiative through the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Regional Innovation Clusters (RIC) program, and is hosted by the K-State Technology Development Institute. RIC's are networks of businesses and other organizations that work together to maximize their strengths and resources allowing them to compete on a larger scale.
We serve individuals and businesses in the Great Plains region - the State of Kansas and the nine western counties in Missouri from the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. In this region, we look to create solutions to address challenges and create a competitive advantage for small businesses. We have partnered up with a wide range of economic development entities that will increase awareness, connect to resources, and collaborate together to further assist growing businesses and entrepreneurs.
We can assist with developing innovations in the Great Plains TMC service region by connecting business and technology organizations with individuals and manufacturers.
Our goal is to help individuals and manufacturing companies in making decisions about their innovations so that they can develop, launch and grow new products in the region.
The Great Plains TMC covers the state of Kansas and western Missouri and is designed to support geographically concentrated groups of business and technology resources, suppliers, service providers, and institutions in the industry.
Our experienced engineers are capable of providing technological services that meet technical deficiency needs within the cluster by utilizing a design and fabrication facility, commercial-grade design/modeling software, and fabrication equipment.
We can assist businesses with identifying the best manufacturing process for projecting long and short term production volume and utilizing available suppliers. We turn innovations into action by using manufacturing systems, custom equipment design and fabrication, and tooling and fixture development.
