intouch | ASPI NEWS Upcoming Meetings ASPI's Long History Has Led to Modern Benefits More than 80 years ago, a small group of manufacturing executives, concerned about improving the internal conduct of businesses manufacturing engineered equipment in the United States, decided that the best way to address their concerns was through working together. In 1933, this group founded the Pulp & Paper Machinery Manufacturers' Association (PPMMA). PPMMA was comprised of executives from US companies that manufactured and sold process machinery, parts, and components to the US pulp and paper industry. At that time, PPMMA's goal was to promote high standards in manufacturing, marketing, and occupational safety. The association grew and thrived through the 1980s as the US pulp and paper industry expanded. The name was changed to the American Paper Machinery Association, yet its membership had already grown to include many international companies. In addition, the association widened its focus from equipment manufacturing to the sale and supply of diverse products and services. As the industry and its markets and technologies continued to evolve, so did the association. In early 2003, the name was changed again to the Association of the Suppliers to the Paper Industry (ASPI). This change embraced the fundamental strategic focus of the association toward the customer base it serves. Today, ASPI is a global organization with a North American focus. About half of ASPI's current membership is foreign-based and more than 80 percent of ASPI members have a percentage of their business outside North America; member companies supply a wide range of products and services. The diversity of its membership is a major asset of ASPI. ASPI holds two meetings a year with informative programming designed to help ASPI members and their customers improve industry performance. Only members may attend the ASPI Fall Meeting.
