The partnership is comprised of local manufacturers and distributors, The Mansfield Economic Development Corporation, the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce, (Ben Barber Technical Academy) and TMAC, the local Manufacturing Extension Partnership affiliate operated from the University of Texas at Arlington.
