AMTMA Members Want More Industry Information

The members of the American Measuring Tool Manufacturers Association (AMTMA) would like to know more about their industry, and a majority of them say they are willing to contribute data to help the cause, according to a survey of AMTMA members.

More than 69% of those surveyed say they are willing to participate in an AMTMA statistical program. The statistical reports could track current business reports on a monthly or quarterly basis, as well as produce product-line sales reports, an industry outlook and a salary and benefit report.

The survey results were presented to about 50 AMTMA members at the annual spring meeting in Phoenix, March 21 to 23. More than half of the 112 AMTMA members responded to the survey, which was conducted by Thomas Associates Inc. (Cleveland), the company hired to manage the AMTMA.

The survey also looked at the direction of future AMTMA meetings. While the majority of those surveyed say they like the location and format, comments from some members may lead to breakout sessions that focus on specific business, standards or technological topics.

The group also announced its 2001 Board of Governors: John Kane, Acu-Gage Systems; Rosemary Blanchette Garvey, Blanchette Tool and Gage Manufacturing; Bruce Peterson, Chicago Dial Indicator Co.; Robert Larzelere, Deltronic Corp.; Hilliard Cox, Frank J. Cox Sales Ltd.; Dennis Gilbert, Ledford Gage Lake Inc.; Anthony Thorson, Leitech U.S. Ltd.; Gerald Flannery, Mercury Gage Co.; Roger Taylor, North American Tool Corp. Gage Div.; Darryl McIntosh, Size Control Co.; Donald Moors, Western Gage Corp.
