CBM MEMBERSHIP… WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

Posted on: July 13th, 2018 by cbmEditor

CBM is the leading trade association for UK manufacturers of fasteners, forgings, pressings and cold rolled products; the very building blocks of UK manufacturing. CBM members provide high quality components to key industry sectors; indeed virtually every manufacturing sector buys components from a CBM member company, most of which hold a range of third party quality accreditations.

In additions to CBM’s manufacturing companies, its associate members included suppliers of materials, equipment, consumables and services, universities and research bodies – a true reflection of CBM’s support of a totally integrated metalforming community.
