The benefits of membership
There are many advantages to joining industry associations like AMT, for example. AMT helps its members improve and grow their businesses through networking and educational events, consultation services, analysis of industry trends and more. These services and programs available from AMT are meant to foster product innovation, market expansion and employee development.
To help members develop their business in new markets internationally, AMT has Tech Centers and representatives in Mexico, Brazil, Poland, India and China. AMT Tech Centers offer members a cost-effective way to hire local employees, provide field service to customers, and gain local market intelligence.
The Ohio Broach & Machine Company is one AMT member that has excelled at expanding into international markets. Its equipment is used in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Israel, China, South Korea and the Philippines.
The association also works with government as a representative of the manufacturing technology industry. That means it champions a legislative and policy agenda with manufacturing competitiveness as a top priority. AMT also calls on the government to enact legislation aimed at creating greater investment in R&D and innovation, and a better educated workforce.
