We understand that mapping out a growth strategy and implementing a financial strategy to maintain your growth go hand in hand. The right financing solution will become the foundation of business expansion and growth.

NEPIRC gathers the latest intelligence on financial resources, grants, investor access, and loan programs that are available to the manufacturing community. And we are eager to share everything we know. Our financial experts work to access a company’s financial situation, develop a plan, and implement a solution aligned with your short- and long-range capital goals.

Our financial services do not compete against banks or funding programs – we partner with them to provide the best solution to a manufacturer seeking access to capital.

NEPIRC offers the following programs to help you with your Business Strategy and Financing:
