Frequently Asked Question
What is MRN?
MRN helps MFG suppliers find and meet new customers by giving them data, a referral process and a team of referral partners made up of local non-competing suppliers.
Why should I join?
If your business is at risk because of too-big customers, turbulent backlog, price pressure or declining sales, you need new customers. MRN can help with that.
