MachineMetrics Supports NTMA Foundation With Donation

MachineMetrics will be donating a portion of its sales from The MFG Meeting to support manufacturing education initiatives.

MachineMetrics, Inc. is proud to announce they will be donating 10% of all sales from their time at the MFG Meeting to the NTMA Foundation, a nonprofit designed to fund manufacturing education. The 20 year-old Foundation operates independently and creates numerous institutes and scholarships that support students who are pursuing careers in the manufacturing industry. MachineMetrics will donate 10% of subscription revenue generated by customers who sign up at The MFG Meeting in Palm Desert, California. This commitment will last for 12 months.

Eric Hagopian, VP Sales and MachineMetrics Board Member, expressed his enthusiasm about getting involved with the NTMF and investing in the next generation of manufacturing professionals. “As MachineMetrics continues to grow, it’s important to give back in some way,” he said. “If students want to go on and pursue an education in manufacturing, there should be ample opportunities for them to do so. The NTMF has done outstanding work to consistently provide these opportunities. We are proud to be a part of that.”

As a startup, MachineMetrics stood out to NTMF with their contribution. “This is a very generous offer to the foundation,” said Mike C. Mittler, the Chairman of the Foundation and Past Chairman of NTMA. “It’s rare to witness such a level of philanthropy in such a young company. The National Tooling and Machining Foundation is grateful to MachineMetrics for their early dedication and commitment to NTMF.”

Donations will be derived from all sales at The MFG Meeting, hosted by NTMA and The Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT). The event will run from March 2nd to March 5th. Participants are exposed to a wide range of topics and trends from the top professionals in the industry, such as forecasts in manufacturing, sales strategies, and innovative methods.
