NOMMA Members In Action

Karine Maynard, Maynard Studios: "As the effects of COVID-19 become more stark we’ve begun to ask what we, as an individual shop, might be able to do to support the fight against this virus beyond proper hygiene and distancing.  We, individually, have access to a decent amount of equipment and resources, and we have the ability to make things. As the entire NOMMA group, we bring to the table a portfolio of every piece of manufacturing tech out there, but we don’t know the needs.

Maybe there is a component that is in short supply, a specific type of washer, a support bracket, or other need, medical or otherwise.  This is a time for us as a community to rise to this challenge and help our nation.  Just tell us what is needed and if we can make it, we will!"
