About PMA

Founded in 1909 by Bucks County industrialist Joseph Grundy, the Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association is the nonprofit, statewide trade organization representing the manufacturing sector in Pennsylvania’s public policy process.  Headquartered just steps from the state capitol in Harrisburg, PMA works to improve Pennsylvania’s ability to compete with other states for investment, jobs, and economic growth.

Business in Pennsylvania *is* our business. 

Our Partnership with the National Association of Manufacturers

“The National Association of Manufacturers is proud to count the Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association as one of our key allies. The PMA is a strong advocate for pro-growth policies that will strengthen manufacturing and create jobs in the Commonwealth. Our partnership with the PMA makes manufacturers’ shared message of jobs and economic growth more powerful and effective.”
