Green Manufacturer Network Connects, Educates Ecosavvy Manufacturers

The Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, Intl. (FMA) invites manufacturing executives to join its new Green Manufacturer Network, a professional organization of individual members working together to drive the transition toward environmentally friendly manufacturing.

“The mission of the Green Manufacturer Network is to be the principal resource to advance sustainable manufacturing,” said Edward Youdell, president and CEO of the FMA. “By joining this network, executives throughout the entire supply chain can learn practical strategies and affordable measures to run sustainable operations, as well as discover new business opportunities in the green marketplace.”

Members of the group receive discounts on conferences, workshops, and webinars; helpful event announcements and topical discussions; as well as access to sustainability resources.

“In a recent FMA member survey, 51% of respondents indicated their company has a committed sustainability program with dedicated staff and performance metrics,” said Jim Warren, FMA membership and education director. “An additional 38% of respondents indicated their company was moving toward full commitment to sustainable practices. They’ve recognized that being green directly impacts the bottom line in a positive way. Further, good environmental stewardship sends a powerful message to current and potential customers of one’s dedication to sustainability in their communities.”

Members will be able to share knowledge on sustainable manufacturing and promote awareness that going green can increase profitability while forming valuable contacts with other green leaders through volunteer and educational opportunities.

Based in Rockford, Ill., FMA is a professional organization with nearly 2,300 members working together to improve the metal fabricating and forming industry. Founded in 1970, FMA brings metal fabricators and fabricating equipment manufacturers together through technology councils, educational programs, networking events, and the FABTECH® trade show. FMA also has two technology affiliates, the Tube & Pipe Association, International (TPA), which focuses on the unique needs of companies engaged in tube and pipe producing and fabricating; and Green Manufacturer Network, a professional organization of individual members dedicated to working toward environmentally-friendly manufacturing.
