Changing the Way Americans Think About Manufacturing Careers

Valve manufacturers must keep recruitment, training and professional development at the forefront of efforts to fill jobs quickly being vacated by retiring boomers. VMA is helping in those efforts in many ways, including development of the Valve Careers initiative in 2015. The program strives to enlighten young people and show them how valve manufacturing is interesting, rewarding and offers many different careers paths for growth. MORE

Because of the importance of these unappreciated tools, we explain the factors that go into making decisions on designs and how those factors are affected by the standards involved. MORE
