MARN—Connecting Part Makers, Part Buyers, & Support Resources to Benefit All!

At the Manufacturer’s Alliance Resource Network (MARN), our focus is orchestrating “customer-driven manufacturing alignments.” In simpler terms, we connect precision-focused OEM component manufacturers and business resources with New England customers that have unique custom component and business needs.

Representing only the “best of the best” in manufacturing

Registered as a woman-owned sales and service corporation, MARN enjoys exclusive synergistic alliances with some of the finest manufacturers and specialized professional service providers in the U.S. Our principal partners have all been thoroughly vetted to ensure their product quality and customer service meet the highest standards. These Manufacturers and Alliances collectively create a Resource Network that benefits all of our affiliates—the business-strengthening advantage that defines MARN!

MARN proudly supports the U.S. reshoring initiative

With a mission of “bringing good, well-paying manufacturing jobs back to the United States,” the U.S. Reshoring Initiative assists companies by helping them reevaluate offshoring practices. Through an accurate reassessment, manufacturers often discover that the “long-term costs and issues” associated with offshoring make the practice of going overseas for parts less advantageous – especially in light of recent global supply chain issues.

Through our service advantages and ongoing support, MARN is committed to being a true partner in strengthening the backbone of our country: The United States Manufacturing Industry.
