Economic Impact

Manufacturing: In April 2002, the American Society for Training and Development completed an economic impact study for MEP (Manufacturing Extension Partnership) Utah, currently headquartered in the UVU BRC. The study evaluated the impact of 40 recent projects. The results showed that the MEP Utah could be credited with creating or retaining 1,055 jobs, retaining or increasing sales by $122 million, and $474 million in industrial output. Performance since then has continue to track those metrics. See WestCamp.
