The Engineering Industries Association is an organisation with over 60 years experience in promoting trade and representing the interests and aspirations of the UK engineering manufacturing sector, particularly SME's.

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, joint ventures 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.
