A thriving industrial economy is essential to the functioning of the City, ensuring the production, distribution and maintenance of goods and infrastructure, providing nearly half a million jobs—more than currently exist in NYC’s technology or finance sectors—and supporting a pathway to the middle class. A robust industrial ecosystem is vital to addressing the challenge of climate change, adapting to disruptive technologies, and creating the next wave of innovation.
Building an active, organized constituency to unify industrial and manufacturing businesses and elevate practices of high road employers.
Partnering to co-develop solutions to ensure there are reliable talent pipelines and upskilling resources for industrial businesses.
Working with City government to address challenges and create industry stability.
Facilitating a transition to Industry 4.0 — automation and data technology — and related changes in workplace culture in order to minimize the pressures of disruption.
MaiiC is led by an Executive Board of key representatives of businesses across the industrial and manufacturing sectors, and includes advisory committees which will be organized as follows:
ApprenticeNYC is a paid, full-time apprenticeship opportunity that provides classroom-based technical instruction and on-the-job training that helps New York City jobseekers develop in-demand skills in a long-term occupation with high growth potential.
ApprenticeNYC offers career tracks in Advanced Manufacturing, Transportation and Logistics, and more. The first computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinist track of the program provides 10 weeks of classroom instruction and 62 weeks of on-the-job training with employers in the advanced manufacturing sector.
