Dearborn-based SME, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting manufacturing, has launched a corporate membership program, offering company employees access to membership benefits including training, events, research, and publications.
“From manufacturing companies who are looking for solutions to fill gaps with qualified professionals to those who need to get their hands on data and real-time trend reports, an SME corporate membership can provide custom-made solutions,” says Christopher Wojcik, director of membership at SME.
Wojcik says the corporate membership connects companies to tens of thousands of professionals within the SME network and is available in two options: supporting and premier. For companies with specific challenges, the premier membership is designed to offer a tailored experience to meet needs related to workforce, technology, or other industry issues. Both memberships offer access to the benefits including research and training.
“Manufacturers face many of the same challenges, but each situation has a uniqueness that doesn’t always have a cookie-cutter answer,” Wojcik says. “We are dedicated to finding the right solutions for our corporate members so they can meet their business objectives and succeed in the marketplace.”
Companies who have corporate memberships include General Motors Co.; Houston-based Black Horse LLC, a provider of well service pressure pumping products; and California-based Romac Supply Company Inc., a supplier of electrical safety equipment.
SME also launched a seminar series this month on smart manufacturing, including digital manufacturing and 3-D printing.
