The International Maintenance Institute
What is The IMI?
In 1960, C. William Cleworth, publisher of the MAINTENANCE MAGAZINE, foresaw the need of an international organization to serve the needs of the maintenance profession. In December, the International Maintenance Institute was chartered as a non-profit corporation in the State of Connecticut. The philosophy of the organization was to professionalize the maintenance function by helping maintenance managers to work smarter through the exchange of ideas and education. The philosophy is still the same today.
The International Maintenance Institute (IMI) is a goal-driven organization made up of decision making maintenance leaders as well as related sales and service professionals – all dedicated to keeping a nation’s infrastructure operating smoothly.
