PMA Elects Troy Turnbull as Board ChairmanApril 23, 2020
The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), Cleveland, OH, elected Troy Turnbull, president and CEO of Grandville, MI-based Industrial Innovations, Inc., as the 2020 chairman of the PMA Board of Directors. Doug Johnson, president of Cheshire, CT-based Marion Manufacturing Company, will serve as vice chairman and treasurer. Both will serve 1-yr. terms. Turnbull succeeds outgoing PMA Board Chair Troy Roberts, CEO of Denver, CO-based Beanstalk CCW, LLC.
“I’m honored to be elected board chairman and thank Troy Roberts for his dedication and outstanding leadership during his term as chair,” says Turnbull. “My top priority is to work with PMA President David Klotz and his staff to help our members navigate through this uncertain time. PMA has been doing an outstanding job in providing the most relevant information possible to help our members, while the One Voice team in Washington, DC, our collaborative advocacy program with the National Tooling & Machining Association, is ensuring that our industry's voice is heard on Capitol Hill, at the White House and in the national media.”
PMA has established a coronavirus page on its website to provide important health resources and guidance, and with the One Voice team, created a resource page to deliver practical information that members need to operate their businesses. The current website topic areas include Safe Workplace Guidelines; Workforce Resources; Human Resource Compliance Tools; Loan and Tax Information; and Federal, State and Local Government Ordinances and Information. The site is updated constantly as new information becomes available.
Turnbull adds that PMA will continue its efforts to become the premier training provider throughout North America, via its METALFORM EDU online platform.
“METALFORM EDU is vital to helping our members, and the industry, succeed and grow, in 2020 and beyond. We will establish a workforce-development committee charged with creating a playbook to help guide metal formers as they begin to use and embrace METALFORM EDU.”
