Women in Manufacturing
The Women in Manufacturing Association (WiM) is the only national trade association dedicated to providing year-round support to women who have chosen a career in the manufacturing industry.
Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance is a non-profit organization made up of coalition of aerospace companies that serve North America’s largest commercial aerospace manufacturing cluster which centers round The Boeing Company and other growing segments in the Pacific Northwest.
The National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA) is a US-based membership trade association with the collective power of 1100 thriving tool & die and precision manufacturing companies representing more than $35 billion in sales.
Since its founding in 1943, NTMA has remained relevant by changing with the times, focusing on the future of American manufacturing as exemplified by our members: small and medium-sized companies, many of them family owned or privately held.
NTMA has the know-how, resources and national presence to drive positive change and growth. Our growing membership is gaining momentum and bringing a new perception to precision manufacturing across the U.S.
The PMPA is an international trade association representing the interests of the precision machined products industry. While PMPA consists mainly of U.S. and Canada based manufacturers, its members also operate facilities in various industrial markets around the globe.

OCD & Eagle Manufacturing: A Perfect Match made possible by ProShop
Founded in 2017 as a single-student extracurricular venture, Eagle Manufacturing has expanded exponentially since its conception. Without a doubt, Eagle Manufacturing could not have been created at a better time in a more perfect location. In Brown County Indiana, the manufacturing industry had burned out with the For Bare Feet sock factory fire in 2011. The concept of a Student Run Manufacturing Business had been popularized by Cardinal Manufacturing in 2007-2008. The Brown County High School Project Lead the Way program had an abundance of underused and expensive machinery and Eagle Manufacturing began as a way to use the equipment the school had been fortunate enough to acquire, and has since grown into a program supporting students to learn “employability” skills in a real world workplace environment.
