The National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) is the national representative of the precision custom manufacturing industry in the United States. 

As stated on their website, while many of our members are privately owned independent businesses, the products and services they provide are absolutely vital to the nation’s economy. Backed by nearly 2,000 members representing more than $40 billion in sales, we have a collectively powerful voice. We also serve as a valuable national resource for our members, helping them grow profitably.

The NTMA is a membership organization with collective power of 1,300 thriving member tool & die and precision manufacturing companies.

NTMA has a three-prong approach:

  • Learning
  • Advocacy
  • Networking

LEARNING: Members enjoy recurring educational events led by experts and industry peers. Members can access aptitude tests and courses through the NTMA-U online program and grow their own talent through NTMA’s pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeship programs.

ADVOCACY: Members have a voice in Washington D.C. through their lobbying group, the Franklin Partnership. 

NETWORKING: Never underestimate the power of connection. Peer-to-peer, business-to-business—NTMA opens doors for lasting personal and professional relationships.  Whether it is through facilitated one-on-one connections or events, NTMA offers a link that only membership can provide.
