MMMA website gets a lift
The first phase of the new MMMA website has gone live, with a new facelift just in time for MACH 2012.
Designed by Eleven Ten Creative, the new look reflects a growing desire from the Association to embrace the digital age and make the site is easier to navigate and more informative.
There are plans to develop an online Buyers Guide and Job Matching service in the coming months, not to mention developing its social media presence through Twitter and LinkedIN groups.
Metalworking Village set to be a big attraction at MACH 2012
18 members of the Metalforming Machinery Makers’ Association are heading to MACH 2012 in April as part of a special Metalworking Village.
The idea is the brainchild of the MMMA and will provide a vibrant hub and meeting area for sheet metal firms, including the likes of Bruderer, Worcester Presses and Schuler Presses, to promote the technical capabilities of the sector.
It is one of the largest collections of sheet metal specialists ever seen and event organisers are predicting a lot of interest in the collective.
Ray Jelf, MMMA Secretary, explained: “We wanted to give our members discounted access to MACH whilst maintaining our own presence there, so came up with the idea of creating the Metalworking Village.
“This means visitors can come to one place and view the very best of British based manufacturers and distributors of metalforming machinery and ancillary equipment.”
He concluded: “We are expecting more sales leads for our exhibitors and renewed interest in our sector.”
