WE ARE IMDA ... "As a charter member of the IMDA, and one of the very first printers in North America to embrace IML, we understood early on how important it was to affiliate ourselves with an association dedicated to the promotion and education of the fledgling injection mold industry. As the industry has grown, we’ve benefited from all the seminars, trade shows and networking opportunities that the IMDA has provided. Still a relatively young industry and a small fraternity, anyone interested in positioning themselves in IML should pledge to join the IMDA. Come join us and grow with us."

David Wolff, VP Sales & Marketing, General Press Corporation
