Our Purpose: Connect machine shops, educate the next generation of machinists, and grow your profits.
The SFBA NTMA...
We are the custom precision manufacturing shops in the United States. Many NTMA members are small businesses, privately owned and operated. Our industry generates sales in excess of $40 billion a year. Our nearly 2000 members design and manufacture special tools, dies, jigs, fixtures, gages, special machines, and precision machined parts, either for customers or for themselves. Some firms specialize in experimental research and development work. If you fit this category, you need to join NTMA.
We're focused on 3 member benefits - networking between ourselves in a non-competitive environment, educating the next generation of machinists and machine shop owners, and adding value to your operation by reducing your costs. If you're a precision manufacturer, and making parts for either customers or yourself, and want one of these benefits, click here to submit your application.
If you're a supporter of machining and machine shops, such as a tool or equipment supplier, a material supplier, or a scrap buyer, or if you're concerned about educating the next generation of machinists, join with us as an Associate Member.
