Polaris MEP



Manufacturers in Providence & Cranston can discover new resources for their business during a casual “Meet the MEP” coffee event.

Since January 2023, Polaris MEP has added six new team members including our new Center Director, Matt Watson, and launched three new business improvement solutions based on manufacturer demand.

To help Rhode Island manufacturers learn more about these resources for YOUR business, we’re hosting a series of “Meet the MEP” coffee events around the state. The first one will be held at New Harvest Coffee in Providence!

We’ll provide delicious New Harvest coffee and #MadeInRI pastries. Manufacturers will get to meet Matt Watson, the new Center Director for Polaris MEP, the state’s non-profit manufacturing extension, along with several other members of our team of advisors.

Attendees also will have a time to share best practices/priorities, network and learn about New Harvest’s gorgeous production space on Sims Avenue in Providence.


  • Meet the newest members of the Polaris MEP team

  • Network with other manufacturers

While this event will be held for Cranston & Providence manufacturers only, there will be more breakfast gatherings to follow near you soon! Manufacturing companies based in the East Bay should check out our July event. All others, please stay tuned for announcements.
