Metal Powder Industries Federation appoints new Executive DirectorThe Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and APMI International (APMI) have formally confirmed that James P Adams has succeeded C James Trombino as Executive Director/CEO, effective immediately.

Adams took on additional roles as administrative director for the Powder Metallurgy Parts Association (PMPA), Metal Powder Producers Association (MPPA), Powder Metallurgy Equipment Association (PMEA), and Isostatic Pressing Association (IPA), all affiliated associations within the MPIF umbrella. Additionally, he has also been MPIF’s representative for the Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow, a National Network for Manufacturing Innovation Institute, to aid in the promotion of lightweight technology development.

“MPIF has been a global leader and voice for the North American Powder Metallurgy industry for nearly 75 years and to be its fourth Executive Director is an honour and privilege,” stated Adams. “Jim Trombino has left MPIF positioned for the future and I look forward to serving the current industry while advancing emerging technologies such as metal Additive Manufacturing.”
