Manufacturer's Group

The NEMRA Manufacturers Group is an allied group of manufacturers who go to market principally through the use of independent manufacturers representatives.

The NEMRA Manufacturers Group is an important part of the NEMRA organization. The direct contact and exchange of information between NEMRA and the manufacturers that go to market through independent sales representatives in the electrical industry is a critical component toward effective association programs and services.

Members of NMG are actively involved on committees, in program planning for the NEMRA conferences, planning and attending NEMRA educational and training programs, and development within the NEMRA Information Technologies Division.

NMG provides its members with a forum where manufacturers and representatives can improve communications, reduce transaction costs, add value, and increase opportunities for professional development.
