About JAMA



From the advent of the assembly line to today, manufacturing is still the foundation on which the structure of the United States’ economy is built. Collaboration between all the different skilled trades encompassed by the manufacturing industry, from machining and metalworking to engineering and sales, is critical for success in times like these. That’s where we come in.

The Jackson Area Manufacturers Association (JAMA) is a not-for-profit association of manufacturers and associate members located or doing business in Jackson County, Michigan, and the surrounding region. We have one goal in mind: the continued prosperity of our manufacturing members and the broader regional community as a whole. We focus on helping to improve the manufacturing climate of south-central Michigan as a leading provider of technology information, training, workforce and economic development support services, and issue advocacy at the local, state and federal levels.

Our bottom line is to provide solutions that help our members maintain and improve their bottom lines. The open-forum atmosphere at JAMA promotes member collaboration which helps develop solutions to address the critical issues facing Jackson manufacturing that might otherwise be impossible to tackle by a single company. If you’re a manufacturer in south-central Michigan, or a company that offers products/services of interest to manufacturers, we sincerely hope that you will consider becoming a JAMA member. We are certain you will find the benefits of JAMA membership to be more valuable than the annual dues cost.
