Absolute Machine Tools will be presenting at the 2022 PMPA National Technical Conference, The Pfister Hotel, Milwaukee, WI, May 1-3.

The PMPA is an international trade association representing the interests of the precision machined products industry.  While PMPA consists mainly of U.S. and Canada based manufacturers, its members also operate facilities in various industrial markets around the world.  Absolute Machine Tools is a technical member of the PMPA and is extremely active in providing manufacturing members with educational information to improve their production processes.  The company’s own, Courtney Ortner, was elected Chairperson of the PMPA’s Technical Committee for 2021 – 2022.  Absolute Machine Tools offers over 30 years of experience and expertise in the CNC machine tool industry.  The company also offers members assistance in integrating cost-effective automation solutions through Absolute’s  A+ Automation Team.  In 2018, the company became employee owned and has over 70 employees with six offices across the United States.
