EURIS welcomes three new members


The EURIS Taskforce is delighted to announce three new additions to its rapidly growing membership. The British Fluid Power Association, the British Pump Manufacturers Association and the Lighting Industry Association have all joined EURIS in the last few weeks taking the total number of EURIS member associations to 11.

Steve Brambley, EURIS Vice-Chair said “The EURIS Taskforce continues its expansion of recent months and now represents sectors with a turnover of £109 billion across electrotechncial, electronics, lighting, renewables and mechanical engineering products. EURIS’ continued growth reflects both the importance and the impact of the work we are doing on Brexit for the industrial product supply industry”.

Chris Buxton, Chief Executive Officer of the British Fluid Power Association, said “As the UK’s only trade body for the hydraulic and pneumatic industries, it’s crucial for the BFPA’s voice to be heard in Brexit discussions that impact on the future of our industry. EURIS membership ensures this is the case”.

Steve Schofield, Director and Chief Executive of the British Pump Manufacturers Association, said “The BPMA’s mission is to influence the pump sector business environment in the interests of members’ competitiveness and sustainability. In order to achieve this, we need to part of the conversation with Government about what Brexit looks like for our industry – EURIS delivers this for us”.

Peter Hunt, Chief Operating Officer of the Lighting Industry Association, said “The LIA is the largest trade association in Europe dedicated to serving the UK Lighting Industry and its supply chain. We joined EURIS to ensure our members are kept up to date on all relevant Brexit developments and can have a say in what Brexit will mean for the UK lighting industry”.
