Our Mission

The Smaller Manufacturers Association of Connecticut, known as the SMA, was incorporated in 1949 as an organization that serves to promote the cause of smaller manufacturing firms in all facets of their business organizations. The SMA provides resources at monthly meetings which bring members topical and relevant information to help manufacturers thrive. Our membership includes over 138 firms representing more than 6,000 employees.

Networking and Programs

Meeting other business owners is a great way to expand business relationships. Our monthly programs offer insight to areas such as marketing, government, lean manufacturing and leadership. All meetings are at convenient locations in the Greater Waterbury Area.

Taxes and Regulations

The SMA has a collaborative venture for legislative purposes with New Haven Manufacturers Association and METAL to comprise Connecticut Association of Smaller Manufacturers (CASM). Lobbying services are provided by MP Guinan Associates of Hartford.

Future Workforce

Skilled employees are essential to all manufacturers. With an aging workforce, it is more important than ever to hire quality, skilled employees. In partnership with area technical, comprehensive and community colleges, the SMA continues to support the education of tomorrows technical workforce.




Students of the Month

Each month we select two students as our Students of the Month. Each month we honor them and their hard work.
