About the 495/MetroWest Supply Chain Directory
The 495/MetroWest Partnership has been awarded a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Business Development (MOBD) to develop the 495/MetroWest Supply Chain Directory, an online informational resource focused on enhancing information about business entities located within the region at several different points of a supply chain, aimed at supporting regional supply chain resiliency.
This online database provides information specific to the 495/MetroWest Partnership’s 36-community service area, featuring descriptions of local companies engaged in manufacturing, supplying raw materials, warehousing, transportation, and logistics.

About the 495/MetroWest Partnership
The 495/MetroWest Partnership is a unique public-private collaboration among businesses, municipalities, and other stakeholders focused on creating an environment that prepares for and cultivates sustainable growth across our 36-community region. The Partnership accomplishes this by providing coordination, education, and advocacy for solutions to regional constraints and limited natural resources.
The key priorities that the Partnership addresses within the 495/MetroWest region are separate and unique, but operate as part of an interrelated network of regional needs. All areas of concern are important, and each one must be addressed in order to achieve the goals envisioned by the Partnership. These areas of focus include economic development, transportation, housing, energy and sustainable development, and water resources, among others. The Partnership maintains several issue-focused committees which address a myriad of regional topics and provide a forum for discussion, informational presentations, and coordination. These committees include Transportation, Water Resources, Energy and Sustainable Development, and Housing.
The Partnership’s service area consists of 36 municipalities, which are home to approximately 1 in 10 residents of Massachusetts, 1 in every 10 jobs in Massachusetts, and 1 in every 10 payroll dollars. The region’s annual payroll is approximately $25.2 billion. The Partnership serves as an invaluable coordinating entity and advocacy voice for these 36 municipalities, who share many common traits, strengths, and challenges, but which are otherwise divided by county, Congressional District, planning council, RTA and Chamber of Commerce service area, and watershed. On the periphery of the Boston area but not quite Central Massachusetts, indeed an original impetus for the Partnership’s founding was the need for a unified voice for this unique region, and a vehicle to overcome jurisdictional boundaries.
