Why Join PMA?
There are many reasons why a company joins a trade association. Some primary reasons are to gain knowledge that will accomplish tasks and projects, to educate its workforce, to promote the company within different markets and to find new business. All good reasons to join, now the bigger question becomes, whether it is practical or economically feasible for a single company to accomplish these and other tasks on its own.
Nearly 900 companies with more than 80,000 employees are finding the answers to solve their business questions at the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA). In fact, we have been guiding and helping metalforming companies improve productivity and profitability for more than 70 years.
Your involvement starts on the first day your company joins and grows over time. Read how one member has found the value of PMA:
"Our involvement with PMA started in 1985. At that time, the networking and technical resources available were critical to the successful transition of leadership that took place within our company. The association is the single most effective resource we have for knowledge, advocacy, networking and leadership development in the metalforming industry. Without PMA, we would not be the company we are today. As our participation in the association continues to grow and evolve, so does our company, our people and our competitive advantage."
