Two plastics-related Canadian industry organizations are collaborating to support the country’s automotive sector.
Effective January 1, the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA) and Canadian Association of Mold Makers (CAMM) entered into what they call “a collaborative working relationship”, in which they will share in common industry initiatives such advocacy, events and trade missions.
According to a joint statement, each organization will continue to operate independently and maintain their own membership roster, “however, through this collaborative relationship, members from each organization will have access to membership benefits in the other association and vice versa.”
This collaboration “will strengthen representation to customers and government in the Canadian auto sector and provide more effective support for member companies of each organization,” the statement continued.
“APMA welcomes the opportunity to work with CAMM and its members as we seek to strengthen the voice of the automotive supplier representation in industry, to our collective customers, and in government advocacy,” said Flavio Volpe, president of APMA.
APMA is headquartered in Toronto, and CAMM is based out of Windsor, Ont. APMA is Canada’s national association representing OEM producers of parts, equipment, tools, supplies and services for the worldwide automotive industry. CAMM is a not for profit industrial organization consisting of moldmakers and their integrated moldmaking network.
