PMPA Recognizes the Support of its Technical Members

The association’s technical members, made up of industry suppliers, contribute to PMPA’s “circle of support” by sharing their expertise with member companies and attending events such as PMTS.

Technical members contribute to the success of the PMPA by their participation in its various activities, such as this workshop exercise during the association’s last National Technical Meeting in Grand Rapids, Michigan. 

According to the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA), its technical members play an important role in keeping the association thriving and progressive. Tech members are the suppliers who manufacture the tooling, support machinery, software, machine tools, barstock and other items used by our industry. These members contribute to the PMPA’s “circle of support” philosophy by serving companies, sharing their expertise and the latest developments at the National Technical Conferences, exhibiting at the Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS), speaking at chapter and other national meetings, and serving as association leaders.

As a means of showing its appreciation for their contribution, each company’s level of participation in the life of the association for the past year is measured, with those who are truly outstanding qualifying for the Technical Member Participation Award. Listed below are the top companies for 2015-2016. Those receiving honorable mention for the award are also noted. Companies will be presented with the award at the Annual Awards Banquet during the 2016 Annual Meeting in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
