An ever changing, almost always growing list of associations and organizations with whom we have the pleasure of partnering. 



One of our specialties is recruiting for aerospace manufacturers so our partership with 47G is a no-brainer. Check out their fresh, hot WEBSITE.
"At 47G, we’re building the world’s premier ecosystem for aerospace, defense, and cyber companies. Our mission is to foster talent, fund entrepreneurship, and fuel innovation in Utah, America’s deep tech frontier." They are the first-ever convening body for aerospace and defense companies in the state of Utah. The organization works as a partner to the Governor’s Office, World Trade Center Utah, the legislature, and other organizations in promoting and advocating for the aerospace and defense industry.


Utah Manufacturer's Association

Spectrum has been an active partner of UMA since we started doing business! From THEIR WEBSITE

"The Utah Manufacturers Association (UMA) has been the leading alliance for the manufacturing community in Utah since 1905. We represent over 1200 manufacturing and service providers, big and small, in every inch of Utah. We understand that as a manufacturer and service provider, a lot of hard work goes into running your company, and every company faces unique challenges.

Here at UMA, we like to help with these unique challenges. We are the voice for the manufacturing community in Utah. When you become a member, we will work hard to provide the support that your business needs from within your company walls to the walls of the Utah State Capitol." 


Women’s Business Enterprise National Council 
We are incredibly proud to be a certified woman-owned business and WBENC is the organization that we have to thank! From THEIR WEBSITE:
"The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is a leading non-profit organization dedicated to helping women-owned businesses thrive. We believe diversity promotes innovation, opens doors, and creates partnerships that fuel the economy. That’s why we not only provide the most relied-upon certification standard for women-owned businesses, but we also offer the tools to help them succeed. 
There are 13 million women-owned businesses in the U.S., representing 42% of all businesses. Yet there is still a significant disparity in revenue and capital between these businesses and others. WBENC is helping bridge that gap — through access to opportunities, programs that accelerate growth, and campaigns to influence consumer buying behaviors."

Utah Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Initiative 

Another long time friend of ours and key player in Utah manufacturing is UAMMI. From THEIR WEBSITE:

"The Utah Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Initiative (UAMMI) is a federal and state funded initiative to bring together public, private, community, industry and education partners to assure growth and sustainability of Utah’s advanced material and manufacturing industry."


Utah Outdoor Association
We definitely think of these guys as partners AND pals! Check out their mission statement from THEIR WEBSITE:
"Guide the Utah outdoor product industry forward by fostering productive dialogue between outdoor organizations, providing an invaluable network of people and resources, and promoting the industry to the public. UOA seeks to be a catalyst for continued economic growth through the entrepreneurial community within Outdoor and providing a network and ecosystem where business owners and leaders can find support, human and financial capital and resources and provide continued education and best practice sharing."

South Valley Chamber of Commerce

Our headquarters are at the south end of the Salt Lake Valley so naturally, we’re members of the South Valley Chamber. If your business is in the area, you should be too! From THEIR WEBSITE:

“The South Valley Chamber is dedicated to helping you achieve your highest level of success. We work tirelessly to create and maintain a vibrant business ecosystem that best supports ongoing business growth, collaboration, and job creation. 

While we serve businesses all across Salt Lake County, we have formed strategic partnerships with Sandy City, Draper City, Riverton City, and South Jordan City to ensure that businesses in those communities have access to our award-winning mini MBA program and the other business courses offered through our South Valley Chamber Business Institute. 

Join the numerous businesses and cities currently enjoying all of the benefits our chamber has to offer.”


Utah MEP 

Utah Manufacturing Extension Partnerships is a relatively new but already valuable partner of ours who, according to THEIR WEBSITE is "the premier provider of manufacturing improvement services in Utah. We implement proven solutions that produce measurable results. Our all-star team of coaches, practitioners, and industry experts have one purpose: Help Utah Manufacturers Grow and Thrive." They truly do it all and if they don't, they know someone who does.


iMpact Utah
A partner of Spectrum and Utah MEP, “iMpact Utah is dedicated to helping Utah manufacturers grow and thrive. We offer full-service training and consultation services in partnership with the Utah MEP to accelerate the growth of manufacturers and rural businesses across the state.

In Utah

One of our most satisfying partnerships is with In Utah, as we were recently named one of their 100 Companies Championing Women in Utah. We are humbled and honored!

“Helping Utahns support local economies is our goal. We’re focused on intentional connections between consumers, businesses and experiences in Utah. In Utah is positive to the core, non-apologetic, inspirational, and informative.

In Utah is a public information and education initiative funded by federal pandemic dollars. The collaborative initiative encourages Utahns to shop and buy local goods, services, and cultural experiences.”

Well said! Check out the rest of THEIR WEBSITE here.


Catalyst Campus Ogden
Not so much a business association but a valuable connection. From THEIR WEBSITE: "Our Ogden campus is in the heart of Utah’s collaboration and innovation space, located near Hill Air Force Base, Weber State University and multiple technology and start-up hubs. Whether you are an entrepreneur, small business, or venture capitalist, Catalyst Campus Ogden provides the leading-edge to incubate, accelerate, and drive collaboration.
