Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Announces Affinity Program Partnership with Kelly Services

TROY, MI--The Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA) is pleased to announce an affinity partner program with Kelly Services, a leader in providing workforce solutions. The program, that took effect on March 1, provides FMA member companies with the opportunity to obtain skilled manufacturing and logistics talent through Kelly Services. FMA research shows that today's manufacturing and logistics environments require highly-skilled employees in order to remain successful.  
Only the most qualified and well-trained employees are able to ensure that a company maintains optimal productivity and customer satisfaction.  However, the skilled labor shortage continues to be a challenge for many companies in the industry.
"The primary goal of FMA is to help its member companies navigate and resolve their most vexing problems; for several years the skilled labor shortage has been at the top of this list and we anticipate the challenge to continue as more Baby Boomers retire," says Jim Warren, senior director of Member Services, Education and Foundation at FMA.  
"Kelly Services has a long history of serving the manufacturing sector.  With offices located throughout North America, and the world, Kelly can tap into their network to identify the right employees for specific manufacturing situations. We're pleased to offer our members this preferred talent program."
"The partnership with FMA helps to bridge the gap between the demand for skilled production talent and the supply of candidates," said Gabrielle Caputo, Manufacturing Product Manager for Kelly Services. "Kelly can provide small and midsized manufacturers with access to national talent search resources."
For information on membership in FMA and full details on the new Kelly Services affinity partner program, log on to  or call (888) 394-4362.
