Canadian Association of Moldmakers
The Canadian Association of Moldmakers (CAMM) is Canada’s leading national association representing moldmakers, service providers and suppliers to the global moldmaking industry. An 18-member Board of Directors and Advisors made up of industry leaders provides the focus and direction for the organization. New board members are elected annually by the membership to ensure the interests of both the industry and our member organizations are at the forefront of our strategic vision.
The Association was established in 1981 (then called the Windsor Association of Moldmakers or WAMM) to provide a unified voice in representing the moldmaking industry on the national and international stage. As the industry grew and interest in membership increased we became the Canadian Association of Moldmakers in 1992 and have since been joined by a vast array of global companies focused on moldmaking, designing, manufacturing, service and supply.
Our main objective as an association is to promote the moldmaking industry locally, nationally and internationally as well as provide representation on behalf of our industry to Federal and Provincial governments. In conjunction with that CAMM weighs in on government initiatives providing important insight on behalf of the industries we serve, and ensures our inclusion in global marketing initiatives to develop trade and business opportunities for our members.
CAMM negotiated an agreement with the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (APMA) in 2015 whereby members of CAMM are also full members of APMA and vice-versa. This partnership allows our members to participate in committees, trade missions, supplier days, conferences, dinner meetings and lunch and learn sessions. Members also receive access to the CAMM directory, published annually and distributed to all Canadian International Trade offices around the world as well s at international events and fairs we attend to promote our industry and our members. Our relationship with the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service helps to ensure our members have access to exclusive Business-to-Business and networking opportunities. Our members also get ‘first crack’ at the coveted annual CAMM Golf Tournament – typically sold out months in advance.
CAMM is committed to the educational sector which ensures that our industry will continue to grow in strength, technology, and that our youth will choose these trades as their career path.
CAMM has working agreements with other trade associations, and the Trade Commissioner offices around the world. This helps to ensure our members with quality supplier days, B2B meetings and networking opportunities.
CAMM obtains their direction through a 18 member Board of Directors who are leaders in the industry. New members are elected to the Board annually by the membership to provide continuous focus on the interest of the membership in particular and on the industry in general.
