Indiana Manufacturers Association, the INTMA and the Precision Metalforming Association to Host Indiana Manufacturing Suppliers Night

    The Indiana Manufacturers Association, the National Tooling and Machining Association and the Precision Metalforming Association will host their first-ever Indiana Manufacturing Suppliers Night on August 26, 2021, at the Biltwell Event Center in Indianapolis, from 4-7 p.m., EST.

    This will be an in-person event where manufacturing suppliers and buyers can connect one-on-one to learn about the best and brightest products, services and practices in the manufacturing industry.

    As the most manufacturing-intensive state in the nation, the IMA, NTMA and PMA feel it's important to provide a forum where manufacturers may share ideas among themselves and those who support and work with them. The goal of the 2021 Indiana Manufacturing Suppliers Night is to provide an opportunity for meaningful connections that will serve to improve Indiana manufacturing both now and into the future.

    The event is aimed at attracting company owners, managers, engineers, purchasers, sales and other key personnel. Exhibitors must be manufacturers or manufacturing suppliers. Those who provide services to and work directly with the manufacturing community are encouraged to participate as sponsors. 

    The Presenting Sponsor for the event is prominent, Indianapolis-based accounting firm, Katz, Sapper & Miller, LLP; and the Hospitality Sponsor is long-established, multi-coverage insurance company, Federated Insurance.

    Exhibit space, sponsorships and registration are now open.  For details and registration, click here.

    INTMA 2021 Update: What You Need to Know Right Now

    New Year, New Rules:  What Manufacturers Need to Know

    The latest round of economic stimulus legislation included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, creates new tax provisions, expands Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding, and provides additional unemployment insurance benefits. And with a new presidential administration taking the helm, additional tax and legislative changes are on the horizon.

    What does all of this mean for your manufacturing company?

    Join Katz, Sapper & Miller, the Indiana Manufacturers Association, the Precision Metalforming Association, and the Indiana Tooling and Machining Association for a webinar Jan. 27 as professionals from KSM discuss what manufacturers need to know about the most recent stimulus bill, tax implications of a Biden presidency, and more.  Registration is complimentary:  click here to register.

    INTMA High School Precision Machining Competition Rescheduled for April 3, 2021

    Last week the INTMA Board of Directors voted to postpone this year's high school machining competition to April 3.  

    While we believe that this year's event will have to be a little different than in a typical year, we're still optimistic that we can make this happen at this stage.  Obviously if conditions change for the worse we will revisit and take whatever precautions are necessary, including cancelling the event if that's required. We feel strongly that it's important for us to make every effort to offer this program as we continue in our commitment to supporting workforce development and promoting precision machining in our state.  

    Please consider supporting this year's competition.  Event and sponsorship details can be found on our website here.
