Tri-State Manufacturers’ Alliance (TSMA) is a collection of more than 140 businesses and hundreds of professionals who represent the region’s dynamic manufacturing sector.

Companies participating in Tri-State Manufacturers’ Alliance work collaboratively to create a vibrant and attractive manufacturing environment in Southwest Indiana that results in improved revenue and profitability and an increase in manufacturing sector jobs. Tri-State Manufacturers’ Alliance hosts quarterly events, coordinates plant tours, facilitates peer group discussions and networking sessions and provides an outlet for best practice sharing.

A steering committee works alongside E-REP team members to develop programs and events targeted to manufacturers in the broader Evansville region. For more information about TSMA, contact Tyler Stock, or call 812-423-2020.
