Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA) was formed in 1946 the year before India got its independence when around 20 machine tool manufacturers joined hands to form an Association. Over a period of seven decades it has grown in size to have around 500 members representing around 90 per cent of the organized machine tool and allied equipment manufacturers as on date. Today, IMTMA is the apex industry association for machine tool sector in the country. IMTMA plays a critical role in the development of the metal working industry and is a single point of contact for the entire machine tool industry of India. A not-for-profit association, IMTMA’s initiatives range from government advocacy to industry and export promotion, trade fairs and events, training and seminars, technology missions, publication of various industry and technical writings, structuring of regional councils, and development of clusters.
