5 Great Manufacturing Company Resources You Should Bookmark

By Partner, Matthew James Creative

Since many of our clients are B to B and Manufacturing Companies, our staff researched and listed the top 5 manufacturing company resource sites. The list is not in any order, but we found these 5 to have the most resourceful information for everyday operations. We hope you find the sites informative and bookmark them for future reference.

#1 Pennsylvania Manufacturers' Association

The Pennsylvania Manufacturers' Association (PMA) is a great resource if you are a manufacturer in Pennsylvania or do business with a PA Manufacturer. The site focuses on Legal Reform, Education, Labor Issues, Energy, Business Taxes, Regulatory Reform, Workforce and other issues. There is a complete list of Statewide Resource Links, Studies and Reports, Library links and PA Legislative Links that provide the information you need to keep up to date with the current news, regulations and manufacturing forecasting in the state of Pennsylvania.

#2 Alliance for American Manufacturing

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) website is in our top five list because it is a great resource to keep your company informed about issues with American Manufacturing. The website houses a Media Center with informative press releases and news. You can easily find and learn about what's happening in your state and local district with an Interactive Map and Zip Code Search Field Feature. The website discusses issues on Jobs, Tax Reform, American Security, Innovation, Workforce, Infrastructure and Boosting the U.S. Economy. There is a Research Section with multiple documents and videos discussing manufacturing topics with direct call-to-actions to your local governing representatives. The AMM is a non-profit, non partisan partnership formed by some of America's principal manufacturers and United Steelworkers. Keep it Made in USA with this site.

#4 The Association for Manufacturing Technology

The Association for Manufacturing Technology promotes U.S.-based manufacturing technology and the individuals that engineer, construct, sell and service the tools that enable production of manufactured goods. This site provides an abundance of information and contacts, but you must register to become a member. Workshops & Webinars, Safety Standards, Surveys, Articles, Research Trends and Data, and various Industry Contacts. This site makes the list because of the amount of specialized information that is available to its manufacturing members.

#5 National Federation of Independent Business
