PMA Partners with Harbour Results, Inc. and Plante Moran to Provide Industry Intelligence

January 12, 2021

The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), Cleveland, OH, has partnered with Harbour Results, Inc. (HRI) and Plante Moran to enhance its industry surveys and reports. PMA’s new Metalforming Insights reports allow member companies participating in PMA surveys to benchmark against others in the industry, providing key data to optimize operational and strategic performance. Through the partnership with HRI and Plante Moran, PMA will consolidate its six annual surveys into four surveys, with one report released each quarter. The four reports cover financials and KPIs; operations and safety; sales and marketing and forecasting; and wages and benefits, along with executive compensation.

“PMA is excited to launch Metalforming Insights, powered by Harbour Results and Plante Moran,” says PMA President David Klotz. “By partnering with these industry experts to improve our surveys and reports, members will receive critical information to help them make informed business decisions, now and in the years ahead.”  

“Companies can really benefit from good data—from diagnosing problems to understanding what you are doing well to being more strategic,” says Laurie Harbour, president and CEO, HRI.  “We are excited to leverage our Harbour IQ business intelligence platform and partner with PMA and Plante Moran to support continued growth with members and the entire North American metal forming industry.”

“We have been committed to working with PMA for more than 20 years and we believe that providing industry-leading information and insights on metal forming is critical to manufacturers,” says Daron Gifford, partner, Plante Moran. “Through this partnership, the smallest to largest member company will benefit from the industry benchmarks and data analytics available to them.”
