AMBA is governed by volunteering members serving as AMBA Board of Directors and Officers (president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer) and is staffed by full-time employees. AMBA represents nearly 300 member companies comprised of approximately 9,000 employees and representing just over $2 billion in annual tooling sales. Members span 31 states with 12 chapter affiliations.
AMBA member companies serve original equipment manufacturers in every industry including automotive, medical, electronics/electrical, toys, recreation and sporting goods, building and construction, lawn and garden, consumer, and industrial. AMBA also has members that provide services and/or materials directly related to the mold building industry. The members are custom "job shops" and quote jobs on time and/or material.
