Welcome to the Metalforming Matters Blog
PMA is the full-service trade association representing the metalforming industry of North America. If you're wondering why metalforming matters, let me tell you this: Metalforming is the industry that creates precision metal products using techniques like stamping, fabricating, spinning, slide forming and roll forming. Our industry amounts to $113billion in North America and our members' products are present in a wide array of industries. Just check out the chart at the bottom of this post.
PMA was launched in 1942 in Cleveland and we celebrated our 70th anniversary last year. Though times have changed, we have maintained an unwavering commitment to supporting innovative member companies toward superior competitiveness and profitability.
Manufacturing is growing in this country and our industry is proud to be a part of that resurgence.
We will use this blog to discuss the latest industry news, share stories of success and remind readers that Metalforming Matters!
