Sumitomo Invests in Project Management
Project management has become a hot topic within any industry today. This profession is evolving at a rapid pace, and customers seek suppliers having Project Management Professional (PMP) certification to manage their large project orders. Increasingly, this credential is becoming recognized as a set of skills required for success in business.
Sumitomo Machinery Corporation of America (SMA) recognizes the need for our employees to become PMP Certified in order to better manage projects from inception to delivery. We are proud to announce that we currently have two individuals who recently became PMP certified. Mrs. Sara Zimmerman, Project Management Supervisor, received her PMP Certification in April 2009, and Mr. Chester Chen, Applications Engineer, received his certification in November 2008. These certifications strengthen Sumitomo’s ability to execute projects on time and within budget, and demonstrate our commitment to increase our PMP certified managers and improve our project-related business.
