SWIMA’s Membership is a tiered structure offering memberships for manufacturing companies and representatives, as well as Associate and Partner organizations. All applicants must embrace the core principles and be willing to collaborate and work with other members.
Manufacturers are defined as “establishments engaged in the mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products”. Any person employed by a manufacturing firm is eligible to apply for membership on behalf of the company.
Supply chain members are those that provide materials or processes directly involved in the manufacturing of goods.
Associate members are defined as providers of goods or services to manufacturers. These providers may be financial or business advisors, banking and lending representatives, or professional services/consultants.
Partner members are local or state governments, agencies, economic development entities or educational institutions.
