PMA Elects Board Chairman
Troy Turnbull succeeds outgoing PMA board chair Troy Roberts, CEO of Beanstalk CCW LLC.
The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) has elected Troy Turnbull, president and CEO of Industrial Innovations Inc., as the 2020 chairman of the association’s board of directors. Doug Johnson, president of Marion Manufacturing Co., will serve as vice chairman and treasurer. Both will serve one-year terms. Mr. Turnbull succeeds outgoing PMA board chair Troy Roberts, CEO of Beanstalk CCW LLC.
Mr. Turnbull begins his term as chair in the midst of an unprecedented and challenging time for manufacturers during the coronavirus pandemic.
“My top priority is to work with PMA President David Klotz and his staff to help our members navigate through this uncertain time,” says Mr. Turnbull. “PMA has been doing an outstanding job in providing the most relevant information possible to help our members, while the One Voice team in Washington, D.C., our collaborative advocacy program with the National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA), is ensuring that our industry's voice is heard on Capitol Hill, at the White House and in the national media.”
PMA has set up a coronavirus page on its website to provide important health resources and guidance, and with the One Voice team, created a resource page to deliver practical information that members need to operate their businesses.
