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 has worked in the Powder Metallurgy industry for more than 30 years following graduation from Hennepin Technical College in 1985. He began his career with MPIF in 2004 as Director of Technical Services, working closely with the MPIF Technical Board, where he has been responsible for Federation publications, professional development programs and conference technical programming. Under his direction, the Metal Injection Molding and Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy conferences were developed. He has also served as administrative director for APMI International and the Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology (CPMT).

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.”
