Power Transmission Distributors Association is...

the leading association for the power transmission/motion control industrial distribution channel, bringing together distributors and manufacturers.

PTDA Foundation

PTDA Foundation

As the charitable arm of the Power Transmission Distributors Association, the PTDA Foundation champions education and research initiatives relevant to the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry that enhance the knowledge, professionalism and productivity of industry stakeholders.  

Incorporated as a distinct entity from PTDA and governed by a Board of Trustees, the Foundation is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation whose operations are funded entirely by its own program revenues and tax-deductible contributions from industry corporations and individuals. Unlike PTDA, which serves both its members and the PT/MC industry, the Foundation is dedicated to serving the industry as a whole. 

PT WORK Force®

The PTDA Foundation will be a key partner in enabling PT/MC companies to recruit new employees and attain a sufficient, vibrant workforce. 


We are accomplishing this goal with a major workforce initiative: PT WORK Force®.
Three PT WORK Force® committees of industry volunteers will be developing resources to help PT/MC companies be:

  • Educated on hiring trends and best practices
  • Empowered and supported in building a pipeline of candidates for future openings
  • Empowered and supported in recruiting and retaining new hires
