The organization now known as ACMA began more than three decades ago as the Composites Fabricators Association. As the preeminent trade organization of its kind, ACMA is the composites industry’s most effective advocate in the public arena. It represents small and large companies – manufacturers, suppliers and distributors – from every market segment in all 50 states as well as international members.
ACMA publishes a bi-monthly magazine, Composites Manufacturing and generates an array of other printed and online informational and educational materials. Its Certified Composites Technician (CCT) program provides standardized, comprehensive training.
CAMX – the new conference and exposition co-produced by ACMA and SAMPE, serves the entire advanced materials and composites industry. CAMX will be the one source for connecting and advancing all aspects of the world’s composites and advanced materials communities. It will be America’s go-to event for products, solutions, networking, and advanced industry thinking for all market segments. The conference program will take place October 13-16, 2014, and an exhibit hall will be open October 14-16, 2014. CAMX is expected to attract over 8,500 attendees and more than 500 exhibitors.
ACMA is led by the interests, energy and innovation of its members. It works to promote the sharing of knowledge and the formation of strong professional bonds based on common goals.
ACMA’s expert technical and government affairs initiatives provide up-to-date information on the critical issues affecting the composites industry as well as support services designed to strengthen your business and your bottom line. The association is an effective and respected voice within the regulatory and legislative arenas at the federal, state and local levels, vigorously working for sensible public policies to reduce production costs and expand market opportunities.
Composites are everywhere. The scope of ACMA’s activities reflects that.
