QVPI changed its name in 2010 to the Quinebaug Manufacturing Institute, broadening its scope to include the entire manufacturing industry in the area. In 2013, in recognition of the group’s expanding presence in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, the organization changed its name to the Eastern Advanced Manufacturing Alliance (EAMA).
