About World Millwork Alliance (WMA)

The WMA is a wholesale distribution and global trade millwork association dedicated to the progression of the architectural millwork industry, including support of skilled workforce. Their aim is to advocate for their member businesses to foster a united global millwork trade community to deliver innovative services and products.

BluEntCAD’s SVP, Sajeel Khanna remarks: “Events like the WMA promote a sense of identification of different businesses among each other, all decision makers feeling that their challenges are universal, and therefore, the efforts need to be universal. The millwork industry is highly niche and millworkers and business owners face a lot of issues, which cannot be resolved individually. I feel the WMA Platform is the right place to voice your concerns and get your issues addressed, whether you are an entrepreneur or a full-fledged business.”

The Convention has a trade show as well, which has participation from some of the industry’s best-known brands, including Brightwood, Crown Heritage, American Stairways, Novatech, the Penrod Company, Hasegawa International, the GlassCraft Door Company, Prime-Line, Sierra Pacific Industries, Trinity Glass International and Weston Wood Solutions.
