We work on behalf of our metals-based heavy engineering membership to bring them value.

Making a difference to our structural and welding focused members, as well in the space of industry development by offering strong capabilities in research and development, advocacy, consultancy, education skills training, verification, resource and information offerings.

Our members appreciate the expertise we bring to the table – as their trusted organisation, industry voice and catalyst for change.

Membership types

Ordinary membership

This is our top tier of membership – giving you the greatest ability to inform our direction, scope and depth of our actions. As an ordinary member you also enjoy our highest level of discount offerings – including¬†venue hire, library resources, publication purchase, consultancy work, expert advice and educational offerings.Read More »

Associate membership

This tier of membership is perfect for those who’d like to maintain a link to us, but don’t want to incur a membership fee. Available to anyone who is classed as heavy engineering and who buys materials subject to our Heavy Engineering Research Levy, this is a perfect option to stay connected. However, it’s important to note that this level of membership means you’re unable to inform our operational direction and activities.Read More »

Affiliate membership

We offer this special class of paid membership to organisations associated with our metals engineering industry that unfortunately don’t meet the criteria to be our ordinary or associate member. Because we truly value and understand the difference we can make if we collaborate together.Read More »
