Member Testimonial

Having access to contacts and information in the industry is so important. There are always things I can help people with, and things they can help me with, too. Building that camaraderie is huge.” Additionally, “IMA’s 401K program is phenomenal, as a small business, it feels impossible to manage all the fiduciary components of a true 401K and still make it affordable, so the program they have set up is a real benefit to us.

Lynn Hodges, President

Member Testimonial

I’ve been involved with the Alliance since almost the very beginning, it’s something I’m passionate about. When our employees have opportunities to interact with other businesses, they come back with a ton of new ideas and the manufacturing industry in Idaho continues to get better through that resource sharing.

The folks at IMA have identified protocols and resources…that have been incredibly helpful, and we see that as a major benefit of being in the association – they really have your back and they’re only a phone call away.
