In an effort to strengthen the industry's presence in Washington, D.C., PMA joined forces with the National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA) to create “One Voice” for the metalworking industry. Under One Voice, our Washington, D.C.-based lobbying and strategic communications firms work every day to ensure that the industry's voice is heard on Capitol Hill and in the media.

One Voice has a combined total of roughly 3,000 member manufacturing companies and is designed to promote U.S. government policies that will ensure a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. The majority of member companies are family-owned small businesses, two-thirds of which are structured as a Sub-Chapter S Corporation or similar pass-through entity, paying taxes at individual rates.
