Roy Hardy Appointed New PMA President

PMA is pleased to announce that Roy Hardy joined the organization as president on May 15, 2017. As president, he will spearhead the association’s work including leading PMA’s staff; directing strategic planning, membership development and outreach; managing finances; and leading domestic and international advocacy efforts. Roy takes the helm at PMA after eight years as president of the Forging Industry Association. In this position, he represented some 200 member companies ranging in size from multi-billion-dollar, publicly traded corporations to small, privately held forging shops. Roy succeeds Bill Gaskin, who is retiring at the end of May after 40 years with the PMA staff, including the last 17 years as president.

Agenda Set for PMA Member Trip to China for ICOSPA Congress


Get a first-hand look at China and its way of doing business by joining the PMA member delegation at the 19th International Council of Sheetmetal Presswork Associations (ICOSPA) Congress. Hundreds of metalforming-industry executives from Germany, France, UK, Japan, China and North America will meet in Suzhou, China, September 19-22, 2017, to network, tour leading metalforming facilities and discuss new technologies.  

In advance of the ICOSPA Congress, PMA has arranged a three-night visit in Shanghai on September 16-18, to allow for sightseeing and shopping. For delegates, visits to tooling companies are being planned.  View the agenda and join the PMA delegation in Shanghai! Separate registration is needed for the ICOSPA Congress, Sept. 19-22—register for the Congress here. PMA will work with the U.S.-China Chamber of Commerce in Chicago to expedite visas for members.


We Are 75!

2017 marks PMA’s 75th anniversary! We are proud to have been serving the metalforming industry and our member companies for 75 years. To commemorate this milestone anniversary, several activities are being planned during 2017 including a special feature in the July issue of MetalForming, a celebratory event during FABTECH in November and the launch of a new PMA website. PMA thanks you for your support over the years and looks forward to continuing to provide key resources and information in the years to come as the industry continues to evolve.
