PLYMOUTH, Mich. The federal government has awarded a $2.27 million contract to a suburban Detroit organization to promote advanced manufacturing in Michigan.

Democratic U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin said Tuesday that the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center in Plymouth received the contract from the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Levin and Stabenow say the center "helps connect small-to-medium sized manufacturing firms with new product developers." They say its mission also is to assist manufacturers "with tools and resources to bring new products to market and to train workers."

The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center is the state's affiliate of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership.

The public-private network also has offices in Grand Rapids, Marquette, Saginaw and Traverse City.
