Dear Friend,


    At our January 27 meeting, we were happy to confirm our 2020 Board of Directors as well as the 2020 Committee Leadership. Thank you for taking on the responsibility of leading our Association into the new century with your dedication, perspective and love for our industry.


    Our goal is to have 100% participation this year from our membership in some capacity. Whether you take the opportunity to sign up for one of our awesome leadership academy courses, join one of our committees, volunteer for a special event, nominate someone for an Excellence Award or host a Manufacturing Day tour at your facility, your membership is something we'd love to see you utilize in the way that best supports your needs. Stay tuned on social media and here in our monthly Voice to learn more about each of our wonderful committees and classes to help determine how you should plug in!


    Have a great month - we hope to see you!


    Let's Make It Here,
    Lake Ray, President
    First Coast Manufacturers Association

    We are a provider of logo-ed apparel, promotional products and printed materials. We specialize in e-com based retention, safety, uniform and marketing programs. Our 25 years of business and over 20 years in FCMA makes us the perfect fit for your logo-ed merchandise needs.

    In one sentence, what differentiates you from your competitors?
    Our biggest niche is manufacturing, and we pride ourselves collaborative partners as opposed to order takers.

    What is a cool fact about your company and the product or service you provide? 
    “Products with a Purpose”. More and more of our clients want their purchases to have meaning. We offer thousands of items that benefit charities with every purchase at no additional cost to our clients. Tell us where your company passion lies, and we will recommend products that benefit your area of interest.

    How does FCMA make your company better?
    We have belonged to FCMA for over 20 years. Our main benefits have come from advocacy with the city of Jax and Tallahassee. Most notably sales tax relief on equipment over the years. Without FCMA, the exemption would not exist. We love the networking as well.
