The Advanced Materials and Diversified Manufacturing Industry Partnership of Lawrence and Mercer Counties (AMDM IP) was formed in 2004 in order to advance the efforts and increase the competitiveness of the Manufacturing Industry throughout the region. The focus for the collaborative is to develop human resources internally and to track and support local educational initiatives toward the development of a highly-skilled local workforce that will continue to keep Western Pennsylvania competitive in the increasingly global marketplace.
