Society of Manufacturing Engineers


"For more than 75 years, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers has been the place Where Manufacturing Comes Together. Founded in 1932 with 33 members, the organization was originally named the Society of Tool Engineers. A year later, it was renamed the American Society of Tool Engineers. It finally became the Society of Manufacturing Engineers in 1969. Formed amid the Great Depression by a group of tool engineers and master mechanics, the organization looked to collaborate on how to build what would give the Motor City its name -- the automobile."
