Enhancing the Value of Membership
Membership in NASA delivers value for our member-owners by providing them 1) a platform for growth through connections to our network of over 75 preferred mill, operational, and service provider suppliers; and 2) a platform for knowledge to share innovative ideas and best practices. Members who leverage these platforms realize the value of membership in terms of increased profitability, enhanced operational processes, and enlightened leadership. Our management team, working on behalf of our members, develops and facilitates custom purchasing programs with suppliers ranging from producing steel mills to industrial suppliers, material handling, processing equipment, transportation and logistics, general services, and consumable goods. Our negotiated purchasing programs have annually delivered millions of dollars in dividends and cost savings for our members. Members own stock in the co-op and therefore have incentive to direct purchases within the supplier community.
