RODNEY REDDIC: Executive Director, Texas Mep

Rodney Reddic is the Executive Director of the Texas Mep. For more than 20 years, Rodney Reddic has been with Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC), the Texas Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Center. He currently serves as TMAC’s Interim Executive Director. He has more than 30 years of experience working in the Texas manufacturing industrial base. His expertise includes providing industrial engineering and business consulting services to a wide variety of industries.

After college, Reddic started his manufacturing career in 1991 with a company in Houston, Texas. There, he was exposed to thermoelectric technology, which the company used to develop a line of coolers for the trucking industry. “It was fascinating to see how two dissimilar metals could be brought together with a current running between them – producing a hot and cold side based on the current direction,” says Reddic.

“Manufacturing is the lifeblood of the U.S. economy, and for too long we have watched manufacturing disappear. It is encouraging to see leadership taking note of just how important manufacturing is to the overall resiliency of our nation. With the passage of the CHIPS Act and other recent legislation, U.S. manufacturing once again has a bright future”.

TMAC Metroplex is located just off of The University of Texas at Arlington campus in Arlington, Texas. We have over 20 field staff with a dedicated and hard-working administrative team under the leadership of Regional Director and Interim Statewide Director Rodney Reddic.
