National Associate Members serve the NTMA community by offering products, services and information to their regular, custom-precision manufacturing, members. They also support the association by advertising in publications, newsletters and website and by sponsoring national events. Associate members also serve to educate members on emerging technologies and efficiencies and often offer members preferred pricing on their respective products and services.
"We look to bring NTMA owners operational value in the form of profits," stated Joe Di Zazzo, ProfitKey President and CEO. "We have an excellent track record with NTMA companies, and will bring to others who adopt our solution the ability to pursue real operational goals. Examples include targeting on-time delivery above 95%, reduction in carried inventory of 25% or more, improved cash flow due to time phased purchasing of materials, improvement in inventory accuracy and improved supplier ratings from our integrated Quality Management system."
As a new associate member, Profitkey will be attending the NTMA national conference October 16-19, 2013 at the Omni Parker in Boston, MA. ProfitKey has also been asked to present to its members on behalf of new and existing ERP technology and how it can serve and support the growth of the manufacturing community.
"We welcome ProfitKey International to the NTMA family," said Dave Tilstone, president of NTMA. "ERP solutions are critical to the operating competitiveness of our membership, and are vital tools in our role within the U.S. manufacturing supply chain. ProfitKey is well known by many of our members, and we therefore welcome closer collaboration and teamwork with them moving our companies ahead."
