The inaugural Manufacturing for Growth (MFG) meeting aims to bring together hundreds of manufacturing leaders to pursue the common goal of building sustained U.S. economic growth by strengthening the country’s manufacturing sector.
Scheduled for March 3 through 6 in Chandler, Arizona, the event combines the annual meetings of four associations that represent a cross-section of the industry: AMT – The Association for Manufacturing Technology, the American Machine Tool Distributors Association (AMTDA), the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) and the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA).
Combined, the four associations comprise more than 4,000 small- and medium-sized manufacturers from all 50 states that provide products for the aerospace, automotive, construction, energy, medical and other industries. With their shared resources, the Manufacturing for Growth conference will provide an opportunity for more than 500 top executives to exchange best practices as the industry seeks to reassert and expand its U.S. economic footprint, the associations say.
“The collaboration involved with this meeting coincides with the shift in the industry itself toward a greater emphasis on interconnectivity—from the manufacturer to sales distribution to the customer—making it an ideal forum for industry professionals to discuss common issues,” says Peter Borden, AMTDA president and CEO.
