Mission and Vision
Sherry Stepp, MCA President
It may be traditional vacation time; however, the MCA volunteer board of directors has been busy. We have updated our website to get you, our most valuable member, the information you need. We are staying true to our Mission and Vision that brought us all together:
• Mission Statement: To provide world-class educational and training opportunities, to create unique and engaging networking events for manufacturing and industrial cleaning professionals and to establish and hold strict industrial standards that answer the question “how clean is clean?”
• Vision Statement: A community of manufacturing and industrial cleaning professionals networking, sharing and learning from each other.
If you have not visited in a while, take a look around our website. The events page is looking great, we have made it easier for you to contact us, and you can also see our past newsletters all in one place. This didn’t happen all on its own — we rely on members that are part of MCA committees to suggest and provide content. If you would like to volunteer to be part of the exciting adventure to determine “How Clean is Clean,” reach out and we will connect you to the committee chair.
The committees available are listed below along with the board member contact to get you started.
Technical Advisory Committee – Mike Valenti
Education Committee – Darren Williams

A dosing of the cleaning agent or surfactant additive depending on consumption increases part quality, can save costs for chemicals and wastewater, and improves overall equipment efficiency.

In the push to go green, many fabricators are switching to water emulsifiable metal working fluids. The formulators of these lubes use different additives, for the lube to perform properly.
