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.

For 40 years, Sumitomo Machinery Corporation of America (SMA) has grown as a global leader in the power transmission industry, offering a wide variety of products for OEM and industrial applications. The SMA Corporate headquarters are located in Chesapeake, Virginia (USA) with strategic satellite locations in North, Central and South America.  The organization occupies over 500,000 square feet of offices and manufacturing facilities, with over 300 employees. SMA ships thousands of drive products every month, adding to its North and South American installed base in excess of 5 million products.
