Manufacturing Technology Solutions Accelerator


UDRI's Manufacturing Technology Solutions Accelerator connects manufacturers to resources that increase their competitive advantage and help them grow. Also known as FastLane, MTSA is team of unbiased manufacturing advisors and engineering consultants.

As a non-profit organization and part of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) National Network, FastLane performs market outreach to a network of manufacturers, suppliers, engineers, scientists, and other professionals across the southwest Ohio region. These connections allow FastLane advisors to get you to solutions faster.

Each FastLane team member has a manufacturing background. This helps us identify technical and business improvement opportunities to grow your business. As an unbiased, third-party advisor we are not tied to a particular solution or provider—we seek out the best solution for your business because our success depends on your success.

The ability to apply technical capabilities, expertise and resources from UDRI, the University of Dayton and our regional partners is what sets FastLane apart. Moreover, because we are the greater Dayton region MEP, we can help control project costs for manufacturers across our region.

Who We Serve

As west central Ohio's MEP, FastLane serves Shelby, Darke, Miami, Champaign, Clark, Preble, Montgomery, and Greene counties. We primarily focus on small to mid-size (less than 800 employees) manufacturing firms and engineering services. Learn more about FastLane.
