We are proud to be a membership-driven organisation and the leading trade association for manufacturers of fasteners, forgings and pressings, cold rolled and sheet metal products. We work on behalf of companies who span every aspect of British industry, creating components, fabrications and structures for global, national and local customers and their supply chains, and most operate in strategic sectors, including aerospace, automotive, construction, defence, engineering, nuclear, offshore and white goods. We focus relentlessly on both enhancing existing membership services and devising new ones – to give companies the support, advice and information they need to prosper.
Engineering Capacity is the UK's news source for subcontracting and contract manufacturing. If you are a buyer it will keep you up to date with the latest trends, news and capacity investments. And if you are a subcontractor it is the ideal way for you to reach potential new customers.
GTMA is a UK-based trade association representing leading companies in precision engineering, rapid product development, toolmaking, tooling technologies, metrology and other critical manufacturing related products and services.
We have a committed strategy to focus on major market sector opportunities, from aerospace and automotive to medical and marine. Our work with OEMs and Tier 1s has seen initiatives to raise standards in our membership base which is now seen as a valuable resource for buyers building manufacturing supply chains. These initiatives include the launch three years ago of the Manufacturing Resource Centre (MRC) specifically dedicated to providing supply chain solutions.
GTMA members receive a range of benefits – among these are business development programmes to ensure they reach the very high standards required by the sector buyers.
Members can also take advantage of cost savings in areas like insurance and medical cover; as well as a range of business assistance services, technology advice, marketing activities, knowledge transfer and networking, and many others.

Manufacturing in the modern era is a global activity. In recent years, the traditional barriers to cross-border trade have evaporated as the economics of supply and demand now dictate there is competitive gain beyond the restrictions of localised or national business transactions.
The ability to break down the barriers to international trade by producing a magazine and website based on a simple, concise and visual format was the foundation stone of Machinery Trade International and provided the secret to its immediate and ongoing success. Today, a meticulously maintained global circulation of active machine tool buyers is one of the ways that MTI ensures a high success rate for its expanding list of advertisers.
