EAMA

Founded as part of the government’s programme encouraging manufacturing trade associations to form common cause where they could, the Engineering and Machinery Alliance (EAMA) is a self-help grouping of 14 independent trade associations representing circa 2,000 firms in the mechanical and electronic engineering sectors with sales of some £10 billion.  They account for a quarter of the UK’s mechanical engineering output.

Typically, our companies supply ‘enabling technologies’ to other sectors (e.g. automotive, aerospace, medical, power, printing and food industries) in the form of machinery or electronics or packages combining services and products.  Some of our members make machines that make machines.

In the UK much, but by no means all, of this is carried out in small and medium sized niche or specialist companies (SMEs) — innovative, entrepreneurial companies pushing the boundaries of factory performance, extending the envelope of the physically feasible to new levels in terms of speed, precision and migration into novel technologies and materials.
