If there is one certainty about the COVID-19 virus lockdowns, it’s that some job shops have more work than they can handle, while others have lost mandates and have more capacity than they need.
Leave it to the Canadian Tooling and Machining Association (CTMA) to connect the “haves” with the “really needs.”
Find the CTMA Machine Outsourcing tool under the Members Area on the CTMA website. It allows current members to outsource work or browse for machine time wanted by fellow members.
Search current posts by capability and select options to receive automatic email notifications when any future outsourcing posts are listed. It also displays your applications and indicates which ones are pending or have been processed. Indeed, the machine outsourcing tool could be a valuable resource for any company.
The CTMA recommends using Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Edge, when using the Machine Outsourcing tool to avoid known issues with other browsers.
