Purdue’s Technical Assistance Program (TAP) provides support to the state’s manufacturing sector. Businesses can access up to 40 hours of assistance through this initiative. Projects are kept confidential and provide quality solutions.

Our team works with the East Central Indiana Small Business Development Center to offer free strategic planning sessions. These sessions help existing businesses identify areas for improved processes and potential growth. Contact our team to take advantage of resources available.
