About RTMA

The Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association (RTMA) promotes manufacturing innovation and growth in the Greater Rochester and Finger Lakes Region. We support the local manufacturing community by partnering with industry, academia and government.

We’re a membership-based trade organization with over 150 members, including manufacturers and those in the service sector. Founded in 1945, we’ve continuously strived to offer the best services and support to our members.

Our goal in 2022 is to provide 1,500 qualified candidates to our members for employment. We also hope to continue being a voice for manufacturing in the Rochester/Finger Lakes region.
