There are plenty of good
reasons to join us

We are proud to be a membership-driven organisation, working on behalf of companies who span every aspect of British industry, creating components, fabrications and structures for global, national and local customers and their supply chains. We focus relentlessly on both enhancing existing membership services and devising new ones – to give companies the support, advice and information they need to prosper – and will be rolling out new initiatives throughout 2017.

  • LOBBYING AND PROMOTION
    We work with individual member companies to promote their skills, products and services, and give manufacturers a collective voice so their views can be heard at the highest level of politics and business.
  • MEMBER OPPORTUNITIES
    We constantly monitor the availability of national and regional funding, to ensure members are aware of potential opportunities to access finance, and identify potential business opportunities across all our sectors.
  • KNOWLEDGE SHARING
    Identifying and sharing examples of best practice throughout our industry is at the heart of our membership strategy, and we do so through a programme of conferences, seminars and market sector-based events.
