The Wood Component Manufacturers Association (WCMA) was initially organized in 1929 as the Hardwood Dimension Manufacturers Association (HDMA). The basic goals of the association were to establish and maintain specifications and commercial standards for the hardwood dimension manufacturing industry, and to aid in the development of the industry. The WCMA still maintains the "Rules & Specifications For Dimension & Woodwork."
In 1985, the association changed its name to the National Dimension Manufacturers Association (NDMA) to reflect its growing membership base and commitment to becoming a progressive, nationally-recognized association for the entire dimension manufacturing industry. In 1996, the name was changed to Wood Component Manufacturers Association to reflect the broader range of wood component products being produced by its member companies.
