The National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) board of directors has appointed Roger Atkins as president. Atkins joins the association following a successful career in contract manufacturing and in consulting for manufacturing companies. He previously held every officer position for NTMA at the national level, including serving as NTMA chairman in 2012, and served in every officer position in the Houston, TX, NTMA chapter.
“As a longtime member of NTMA, Roger knows and understands our association and its members,” said NTMA board chair Mark Lashinske.
Atkins began his career at his family’s contract manufacturing business, immediately after graduating from Texas A&M University. Over the years, he spear-headed significant growth in multiple contract manufacturing companies, all of which also belonged to NTMA. His greatest success was growing a Texas-based contract manufacturing company from $22M to $156M that included acquisitions and international greenfield startups.
“As we welcome Roger, we also express our gratitude to Doug DeRose who has served tirelessly as NTMA’s Interim President,” Lashinske said. “
NTMA is the national representative of the custom precision manufacturing industry in the United States. NTMA has 29 chapters throughout the U.S. and nearly 1,200 member companies.
