The National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA), the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) and the Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT) announce the 2010 NTMA/PMA Contract Manufacturing Purchasing Fair: Re-Shoring to Bring U.S. Manufacturing Jobs Back Home. The Re-Shoring Purchasing Fair will be held on May 12, 2010, at the Hyatt Regency Irvine Hotel, Irvine, Calif.
The NTMA and PMA re-shoring initiative will document to large manufacturers nationwide the benefits of sourcing in the United States. The highlight of the re-shoring campaign is the first-ever "Re-Shoring Fair," which builds on the 50 successful domestically focused Fairs held by NTMA over the last 25 years. It will provide a one-stop for larger U.S. manufacturers to find competitive U.S. job shops to manufacture parts and tooling. More than 50 representatives from large manufacturers are expected to attend and learn about competitive domestic sourcing opportunities from 200 top custom U.S. manufacturers.
