Who is the NTMA?
We're you. We are the custom precision manufacturing shops in the United States. Many NTMA members are small businesses, privately owned and operated. Yet 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. Some firms specialize in experimental research and development work.
