"CTC is a non-profit corporation that provides job training and employment for adults with disabilities who want to work. We were looking to reach out to manufacturers in our area. A volunteer suggested that we consider MAEA membership. We decided to take the risk and invest in a membership. The rest, as they say, is history. The return on our MAEA membership investment has been nothing short of amazing. We have significantly increased awareness of who we are and the services we can offer to the manufacturing community. Three new board members and numerous contacts have resulted from our MAEA membership. We send staff to MAEA training programs and seminars. Most importantly, we obtained a new customer which over 12+ months has become our number #1 client based on annual gross sales. This non-profit / for-profit sector partnership received an MAEA excellence award in 2012.

Over the past four years CTC has achieved unprecedented sales growth due in no small part to the benefits received through MAEA and the support of their staff. MAEA membership is an excellent investment for any company looking to increase sales, improve production capacity, train staff, or take advantage of a multitude of other benefits."

“The Safety Professionals that we utilized through the Manufacturers Association were a great asset to our company.  They help to bring a fresh perspective and a new pair of eye to our safety program.  They pointed out areas of improvement for our facility as well as our Supervisors, and they always did it in a straight forward and professional manner.  We will be a better facility due to their help.”
