Year of the Manufacturer

The Year of the Manufacturer

In 2017, manufacturers achieved historic victories through tax reform and regulatory relief. The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) highlights these successes in their 2017 Annual Report. PMMI is proud to partner with NAM in ensuring the manufacturer’s voice is heard and strides are made to improve the future.


It’s Time to Take the 2018 State of the Industry Survey

BI Survey

Every year, PMMI surveys to create the State of the Industry report, a valuable benchmarking tool for you to see how individual machinery categories are performing. Only members that complete the State of the Industry survey will receive a free copy of the report ($1,500 value).
