Mission & Significance

ABMA's mission is to lead and unite the boiler industry through advocacy, education, awareness, and our commitment to provide solutions to our members.

Since our founding in 1888, the American Boiler Manufacturers Association (ABMA) has advocated for the safe production and operation of boilers, facilitated advances in energy efficiency, and provided solutions for our member companies. Throughout our history, the boiler industry and our member base have relied on the ABMA to lead the industry as it tackles challenges and embraces opportunities in our constantly evolving sector. Through participation with ABMA, our members are better informed, connected, and positioned to thrive in today’s global boiler industry. ABMA has been critical to the evolution of the boiler industry and a partner in continued progress of this important sector.

Strategic Focus

In January 2016, the ABMA adopted a three-year strategic plan for the association from 2016-2018. The ABMA leadership is confident that initiatives within the areas below will ensure ABMA exceeds member expectations and, with the support of the membership, we will raise the visibility of the association and positively impact the boiler industry.

The plan is a comprehensive strategy aimed to address changing member needs and promote the boiler industry in four key areas:
