Enabling Manufacturing Competitiveness

entrance plazaWhen India gained independence in 1947, the Indian Machine Tool industry also received a facelift with the inception of Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA). The association started for promotional support then, represents the entire manufacturing industry today.

IMTMA was started with around 20 machine tool manufacturers joining hands to form an association which has grown in size to the current number of over 492 members, representing over 90 % of the organized machine tool and allied equipment manufacturers. The initiatives and activities of IMTMA are constantly focused at providing something in return to the industry, for the industry and by the industry. Whether it is hosting the flagship event ‘IMTEX’ – a niche b2b South and South East Asia’s exhibition or short term ‘Seminars & Workshops’ on an array of machining technologies, organising ‘Technology Mission’ to international Trade fairs for CEOs or conducting ‘Finishing School’ for fresh graduates to give them a professional touch, voicing the ‘demands of the industry’ to the government or hosting ‘Productivity Championship Awards’ to recognize the hidden talents of the industry, IMTMA is actively working towards supporting the machine tool industry to flourish on a global magnitude.

IMTMA is governed by an Executive Committee, elected from amongst the Association Members every year. The Executive Committee is headed by its office-bearers-the President and Vice President, elected from amongst them. (Current Executive Committee of IMTMA).
