Testimonials of HMA Members

Huron County is an excellent place to visit, work and live.  Huron County is known for picturesque sunsets, productive farmlands and beautiful scenery.   Many people do not realize there is a vibrant manufacturing community here.  Manufacturing is an integral link in the value chain for local, domestic and international goods. Our family owns and operates manufacturing facilities in Huron County. We have been long-time members, speakers and award recipients of The Huron Manufacturing Association (HMA). Through the HMA we have made several lifelong friendships and met many fellow manufacturers. We have directly benefited from information exchanged through the organization its membership.

The HMA is a well-respected and influential organization promoting and celebrating manufacturing in Huron County.  The volunteer board consists of leaders and supporters of the manufacturing industry.  The HMA promotes manufacturing and youth integration in skilled trades.  The HMA further celebrates and recognizes the achievements of fellow manufacturers at their annual awards GALA. I would encourage any business involved in manufacturing to become a member.

Check out the HMA web directory of manufacturers.  Ask a manufacturer, why they are a member?  Fact of the matter, you cannot enjoy a nice evening out on the town for the cost of membership.  I would highly recommend anyone participating in manufacturing to become a member. “The HMA Membership makes dollars and sense.”

“The reason that Britespan Building Systems is a member of the Huron Manufacturing Association is because we believe in the family of businesses in Huron County. It is important that we support and celebrate in each others successes. I find the banquets so interesting because we learn of other companies we did not know existed and this allows a networking opportunity throughout the county. The HMA supports Huron County businesses and that is important to all of us.”
