The Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC) is an organization that works to strengthen the economy by providing best business practice consulting and technical assistance to Texas industry. They are a part of the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership, a program run by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to help small and medium sized manufacturers.

TMAC is affiliated with the University of Texas at Arlington, University of Texas at El Paso, University of Texas–Pan American, Texas Tech, University of Houston, the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), and the Southwest Research Institute. TMAC was formed in 1995. Since that time, TMAC has worked with over 3,700 companies.[citation needed] As a requirement for NIST support and to track the value of the government program, companies receiving assistance get an opportunity to provide a feedback survey to rate the service and detail impacts in the areas of productivity, competitiveness, employment fluctuations, and material usage.
