What is RIMES?

The Rhode Island Manufacturing Extension Service is a non-profit organization that helps Rhode Island manufacturers of all sizes and industries succeed and prosper. Funded in part through the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NIST MEP), RIMES' mission is to sustain quality manufacturing in Rhode Island in an increasingly competitive marketplace by helping solve business problems. Since 1996, we've worked side by side with over 750 Rhode Island manufacturers to improve process, quality, and the bottom line.

Why is RIMES the best choice?


We have a highly trained and industry-seasoned team, hand selected for their areas of expertise who are passionate about helping companies improve. The majority of us have over 20+ years experience in manufacturing.


Unlike individual consultants, RIMES has a full complement of services and a range of expertise comprising Lean, Quality Management Systems, Environmental, Marketing and HR resources, as well as access to a national network of experts we can call upon to meet your needs.

Local knowledge

Being networked in Rhode Island's business and manufacturing communities means we have the resources to get things done.
