Members on Membership

Wonder what's so special about being an APMM member? Well, don't take our word for it, see what our members have to say...

"Joining the APMM and attending their conferences has been extremely worthwhile for our business of supplying Custom Dry Transfers to model shops of all types. I would highly recommend APMM to anyone in, or supplying to, the model industry and its related fields."
- John Zell, Camera Graphics, Portland, OR

"APMM gives me access and information to the world of model making that is hard to replicate. From a business perspective I am more efficient and can make informed decisions that affect our bottom line."
- Ray Denison, Crown Equipment Corporation

"Thank you for helping us get in contact with several companies that could provide the work we were looking for. It is very helpful to have one organization to go to for such a search. We will continue to go through the APMM for future opportunities."
- Colby Sato, Customer Marketing Manager, Coca-Cola Foodservice & On-Premise

"The APMM’s Q&A forum is a great resource. Last time I needed advice about a roto-molding machine, I posted a question and it worked out well. We ended up buying one and it has been so busy since we bought it that we just purchased another two machines. Thanks for all the advice."
- Brian McNamara, Met-L-Flo Inc.

"As model makers, we're constantly challenged to provide best in class materials, methods, and designs for our customers projects. APMM offers a wealth of knowledge for its members to use in delivering superior products to their customers. APMM Vendor members benefit through this shared knowledge as it allows them to supply problem-solving products to the model making industry."
- Terry Wellman, St. Charles Model Works
