 Welcome to another exciting new year for the Greater Houston Manufacturers Association (GHMA)!

Houston has  been named the number one city for manufacturing in the United States  for the past two years. With all of these new jobs and tremendous growth opportunities for our city, the GHMA is  poised to be the premier association for all manufacturers to come and share knowledge, experience, and  lessons learned with others in the manufacturing industry. GHMA helps our  members with their questions about workforce, tax credits, technology, sales, lending, M&A, education and much more. Our Board of Directors is focused on bringing pertinent  manufacturing information to our members. However, we cannot do this alone! There are several Board and Committee positions available, so if you are interested in getting  involved or  would like to learn more about the GHMA please send an email to ghmainfo@gmail.com
