– Tom Bugnitz, CEO, Manufacturer’s Edge
With the new year comes a change in leadership at CAMA (Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Association). As the new Chair for CAMA, I would like to introduce myself, but first, I want to express my appreciation to Grady Cope for his years of dedicated service to CAMA and the manufacturing community as a whole. In addition, I am grateful for the dedicated efforts of Tim Heaton, CAMA President, and Daron Linton, CAMA COO & Events Manager, and all they do to further manufacturing in Colorado.
I am the CEO and Owner of JPM Prototype & Mfg., Inc., a high precision manufacturer in Colorado Springs. I have been serving on the Board for CAMA and CAMA South for several years and have worked with incredible manufacturers and wonderful partners, like Manufacturers Edge, who are passionate about manufacturing. I have also had the privilege of serving on the Pikes Peak Community College Advanced Manufacturing Board, the Pikes Peak Workforce Center Board, and the Government Affairs Committee at the Colorado Springs Chamber and EDC.
In the past couple of months, I have had some great meetings with Tom Bugnitz and Cindy Nowak to discuss how we can better align Manufacturers Edge and CAMA. I look forward to the partnership we can build between the two organizations. JPM has worked with Manufacturers Edge for a number of years, and it is a privilege to do so now from the CAMA side.
Manufacturing is strong in Colorado, and together, we can make it even stronger.
– Dave Jeffrey, Chair of the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Association
