PMPA Helps Solve Problems

Recently we received a complaint — for a part that went to several different customers — but only one had difficulties. We turned to the PMPA, where the expertise of PMPA staff and the expertise of PMPA members willing to share their experiences allowed us to add real value to the customer’s problem-solving process. PMPA helped us solve a customer problem that could have cost us more than 50 years of dues we pay to be PMPA members — keeping the customer and our bottom line.

PMPA is a Critical Resource to my Company!

A membership in PMPA is a connection into a group of people that have extensive knowledge and experience in industry (manufacturing) . This depth of information has been invaluable to me and my business. I have received business solutions – technical machining solutions – and even office management advice. PMPA is truly a valuable asset to my organization.

The Value of PMPA

PMPA offers friendships and camaraderie as we all know. Its value goes well beyond that though. The resources and sharing of everyday challenges is invaluable. It’s like having teammates you can always count on.
