Community Development

Manufacturing is a community effort. The benefits that high quality jobs bring from a well-respected company within a community are well documented throughout Mississippi. We stress the importance of having a healthy respect for the communities throughout Mississippi that share in their future with some of the most technologically advanced manufacturing companies throughout the world.

Our students, whether from California or Caledonia, are taught to understand that they must have a mind for making continuous improvements not only in their respective companies but also within the communities they call home. Organizationally, the CME continuously looks for ways to impact our community with the same sense of responsibility.

Either through our K-12 programs like “Make It Mississippi” or our affiliation with not-for-profit organizations with strong scholarship development, the CME is purposeful in leading the way for positive community involvement. We are excited to see how manufacturing grows within many communities throughout Mississippi and beyond, as well as the positive impacts that growth has on the people who live there.
