The MAMF was formed in 1917 and is one of the oldest surface finishing associations in the U.S., formed shortly after American Electroplaters Society began in 1913. The organization works to educate, and promote the metal finishing industry and supports local and federal regulations governing environmental and worker protection policies.

Serving as an affiliate of the National Association of Surface Finishers (NASF), the MAMF operates to provide a localized voice and serve as an advocate on issues impacting the Metal Finishing industry.
