About the CPMT
The Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology was created in the early 1980's as an indirect result of a United States Department of Commerce effort to establish a series of "cooperative technology programs" involving several specific technologies. Each was selected by the government as being representative of "growth" technologies capable of enhancing the productivity of America's manufacturing community.
CPMT is a recognized not-for-profit 501 (C)(3)© organization. As such, all funds are tax exempt and all monies or values contributed to the CPMT are fully deductible by the donor.
CPMT is governed by a Board of Trustees, elected by the membership. The overarching goal of CPMT is to promote the progress of the powder metallurgy industry.
There is no legal connection between the Metal Powder Industries Federation and CPMT; however, CPMT is currently administered by the Federation's staff under a contract between the two organizations.
