The Engineering Industries Association is an organisation with over 80 years’ experience in promoting trade and representing the interests and aspirations of the UK engineering manufacturing sector, particularly SME's.

Now sitting as part of the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) family, our offering to members has been strengthened and as technology develops, working together, we will build a community of manufacturing and engineering excellence for our sector.

We are well known as accomplished lobbyists, who make representations to Government departments, Bank of England and other organisations that affect our members interests.

We aim to be the centre of information, trade and support for the engineering industry. Members receive regular mailings consisting of news, trade leads and inter-trade opportunities.

We promote a wide range of free services and benefits that enable members to deal with business and legal problems using the best expert advice.

We are a Trade Challenge Partner (TCP) for the Department for International Trade (DIT) assisting UK SME companies in their participation at overseas engineering trade shows and are able to obtain grant funding for eligible UK exhibiting companies.
