Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification has become essential within numerous industries today.  This profession is evolving at a rapid pace, and customers seek suppliers who are PMP certified to manage their large projects.  It has become recognized as a required skill set for success in business.

Sumitomo Machinery Corporation of America (SMA) recognizes the need for our employees to become PMP Certified in order to more effectively manage projects from inception to delivery.  We are proud to announce that Kevin Blount, our Project Manager, recently became PMP certified.  Kevin holds a bachelor's degree in Industrial Design and a master's degree in Technology Systems from East Carolina University.  He has more than 10 years of Industrial and Management experience.  Kevin accepted the position of Project Manager at SMA in April 2012 and in this role, he has been continuously using project management processes to efficiently manage large customer projects for SMA.  In addition to his position at SMA, Kevin is also an Industrial Engineering and Technology Instructor for Tidewater Community College.

Having PMP certified employees strengthens Sumitomo's ability to execute projects on time and within budget.  Sumitomo plans to increase the number of PMP certified managers within the organization and continuously improve our project-related business.
