How PMPA Membership Improves Productivity and Profitability

Precision Machined Products Association members benefit from the knowledge and support they gain by actively networking and being involved in PMPA activities.

Precision Machined Products Association members benefit from the knowledge and support they gain by actively networking and being involved in PMPA activities. The recently completed National Technical Conference had more than 400 attendees from 170 companies in what was one of our highest-rated conferences to date.

Core PMPA deliverables include:

Electronic Networking – Listserves:
• Technical List: The questions posed on this list are our shops “9-1-1.” How much is a down machine costing you each hour that you wait for a factory person to come in? By posting to our Listserve, you will have three to four actionable responses to help you get your equipment up and running immediately.
Need a gage? Can’t find a specification? Identify the ideas in best practice machining for difficult-to-machine grades. These are the recommendations you can trust because you know the caliber of people providing the assist.
• HR & Corporate List: Limited access email forum where you can get actionable intelligence and assistance (policies, regulations, security and absenteeism). You do not have to solve every problem all by yourself.

Regulatory Assistance:
• PMPA is the leading organization to provide you with regulatory assistance. EPA, OSHA and NLRB are all high risks, but are easily managed when you get PMPA assistance.
• We deal with the agencies and comment on the regulations. We do not just lobby congress to do their job. We are effective — our voice is heard. These are only a few ways PMPA will help your shop be productive and profitable.
