Founded in 1938, the Washington, DC-based Valve Manufacturers Association exclusively represents nearly 100 North American manufacturers of valves, actuators and controls, which account for about 80% of total industrial valve shipments out of U.S. and Canadian facilities, as well as suppliers to the industry and distributors/channel partners.  VMA is celebrating its 75th anniversary, helping keep a flagship industry growing and competitive. Today, membership in VMA is recognized as the “seal of approval.”
