7 ways TMA helps manufacturers in their busy seasons

Busy? That’s good. But busy-ness can sometimes accentuate areas where businesses can improve.

The 93-year-old Technology & Manufacturing Association (TMA) based in Schaumburg Illinois doesn’t just dream about a future with an abundance of well-trained manufacturers – they are actively involved in cultivating future technicians, engineers and crucial manufacturing team members.

Hiring well-trained team members is a key pain point for most TMA members. But many also say that as business owners, they’re heavily invested in retaining valuable, often-hard-to-find employees.

Did you know TMA can help with those challenges, as well?

Check out these 7 different ways TMA and their affiliates offer to keep  manufacturers in the Chicago area humming away in a very busy time:
