Support the PTDA Foundation

Contribute today and join the companies below being recognized throughout 2023!

The PTDA Foundation is able to continue its support of employers in the power transmission/motion control industry through ongoing financial support from companies like yours.  

The recruitment tables have now completely turned. The pool of potential employees is smaller than ever. As an employer, you've got to compete for talent with every other industry out there--industries that are more well-known and, therefore, more attractive. You need to sell your company as a place the future workforce wants to work because you align with their needs (and not necessarily the other way around). 

Together, with the support of distributors and manufacturers in our industry, we're putting together the resources you need to close the deal with that next new hire. Read about recent 2023 efforts made to empower power transmission/motion control employers to attract, hire, on-board, train, manage and retain employees.

Take advantage of this opportunity to build our industry’s future. Contribute online or download the contribution form and return it today.
