Marposs Corporation (Auburn Hills, MI), a world leader in measurement and process monitoring technologies, has announced that they have become a member of the Michigan Aerospace Manufacturer’s Association (MAMA), a consortium of experienced Michigan manufacturers focused on drawing aerospace business to the state. MAMA’s mission is to serve and represent the interests of the state’s aerospace and defense manufacturing firms with a single, unified voice and promote the capabilities of the Michigan manufacturing community to the global aerospace industry.
“Precision components are paramount in the aerospace and defense industries, so we see great growth potential for our measurement and inspection technologies in this sector,” said Gary Sicheneder, the new market development manager for Marposs. “Being a member of MAMA will help us market our capability and leverage these opportunities more quickly.”
