MPIF membership can fine tune your management/marketing strategy by providing current information on: 

  • industry conditions 
  • new developments 
  • trends 

MPIF is able to deal more effectively with industry-wide problems and threats, such as those posed by environmental forces, safety and health regulations, unfair trade practices, or competitive processes/materials.

  • management information
  • annual technical conferences & exhibits 
  • technical and professional education 
  • publications 
  • industry marketing

In addition, each individual association may offer other benefits specific to the needs of its members.

In addition to corporate membership in the six associations that make up the Federation, there are three other membership options. 

Corporate Affiliate Membership: Designed for companies that want to be kept abreast of PM technology and industry developments but do not fit within the scope of any of the six associations. 

Associate/Consultant Membership: These members provide a variety of services including development and implementation of new technology, plant setup, part and tool design, laboratory service, market research, quality assessment, injection molding, magnetic applications, personnel training, and research and development programs. 

Associate/Overseas Membership: Companies that are located outside of North America (and are not eligible for membership in an association that accepts overseas members) are eligible for an Associate/Overseas membership. Associate/Overseas members enjoy most of the same benefits of corporate membership except voting privileges.
