IMA Mission and Membership

IMA is the global resource for the magnesium industry and the voice for its membership and international user communities.

Founded in 1943, the mission of the International Magnesium Association (IMA) is to promote the use of the metal magnesium in material selection and encourage innovative applications of the versatile metal. IMA's members consist of primary producers of the metal, recyclers, foundries, fabricators, end-users and suppliers. The global voice of the magnesium industry, IMA serves the industry and its membership through its Annual World Magnesium Conference, seminars, statistical programs, research and publications. Through IMA's efforts, manufacturers and consumers are increasingly aware of the numerous options and benefits the metal magnesium provides.

IMA’s Mission Statement:

The International Magnesium Association will provide value to its membership through leadership and services in actively promoting the use of magnesium in material selection and encourage innovative applications of this versatile metal by:

  • Actively promoting the use of magnesium metal in material selection
  • Representing the global interests of its membership
  • Providing research and education to actively address environmental, health and safety issues
  • Gathering and presenting statistics and other information about the magnesium industry in an accurate and timely manner.

IMA is a consortium of combined member resources to develop value-added services and programs to address today’s industry issues at a fraction of the cost to an individual company. Membership in IMA is an investment in the magnesium industry.
