Who We Are

The San Joaquin Valley Manufacturing Alliance (SJVMA) is an organization of the Valley’s manufacturing leaders advancing their industry and creating a world-class workforce at the local level. Launched by the Fresno Business Council, SJVMA aims to strengthen regional manufacturing, an industry that employs more than 105,000 people and growing and is responsible for nearly $15 billion of the Valley’s annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The Alliance designs training programs, provides jobs to interns for hands-on experience, educates the public on the benefits of manufacturing careers, addresses legislative issues, and brings local businesses and industry innovators together for the "Valley Made" Manufacturing Summit, an annual manufacturing conference. Through these initiatives, the SJVMA enhances the region’s competitiveness in the global market, multiplying manufacturing’s economic impact on the Valley.
