The Colorado Manufacturing Initiative


About Us

CACI has a long history in the Colorado manufacturing community.  In 1965, CACI was formed by the merger of the then State Chamber of Commerce and the State Manufacturer’s Association.  Since then, CACI has remained the Colorado affiliate for the National Association of Manufacturers and is proud to count many of Colorado’s prominent manufacturers among its members.

In December of 2011, CACI created the Colorado Manufacturing Initiative, adding direction and dedicated resources to foster further growth and success among Colorado manufacturers.
