The National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) and Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) joined forces in 2008 to create "One Voice", the combined federal government advocacy program representing small and medium sized businesses manufacturing in America. The associations created this joint advocacy program to give a voice to the millions of middle market manufacturing companies and employees in the country who supply tooling, components, and other manufactured products to Original Equipment Manufacturers and their Tier I and Tier II suppliers.

One Voice has a combined total of roughly 3,000 member manufacturing companies and is designed to promote U.S. government policies that will ensure a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. The majority of member companies are family-owned small businesses, two-thirds of which are structured as a Sub-Chapter S Corporation or similar pass-through entity, paying taxes at individual rates. Nearly 75% of members report they currently have at least one job opening in their manufacturing plants, with 98% of members reporting that they expect challenges recruiting younger workers.
