Small/Midsized Business

Roughly one half of IFMA's manufacturer members are small to midsized businesses. To ensure that this vibrant and diverse group's interests are promoted and voices heard, IFMA formed the Small/Midsized Business (SMB) Committee. The SMB Committee works to elevate the community's objectives throughout the industry and identify ways they can leverage resources and expertise for the betterment of the SMB community.
