Securing the support you need

To ensure we deliver value to our membership, we offer a wide range of services. All are designed to meet our strategic focuses in innovation, research and development, advocacy, consultancy, resources, education, certification and verification.

That’s why we’re always looking to connect with like-minded organisations linked to our metals engineering industry. It’s about collaborating with a network of companies so that together we can do business smarter and better.


But why else should you join?

Well, here’s FIVE good reasons to be a HERA member:

ONE. Be part of an industry-wide community represented by a credible, trusted, independent and authoritative body providing training, research, resource, technical advice and advocacy on your behalf. The more we are, the bigger our voice.

TWO. Tap into inhouse technical expertise unique to HERA in the areas of steel construction, welding, fabrication technology, certification and upskilling, innovation in business and technology, and research & development.

THREE. Make use of support for our members through the Steel Fabricator Certification scheme and standards development, panel and committee participation and representation to stakeholders.

FOUR. Leverage international connections through like associations such as the SCIUK, AWS, WTIA, IIW, World Steel and universities around the world, and local bodies such as BRANZ, SCNZ, NZSSDA, NASH, CTNZ, NZDTA, MRM, GANZ, MESNZSESOC, ACENZ, SSC, Competenz, Engineering NZ, EMA, Worksafe, Manufacturer’s Network, and Metals NZ.

FIVE. Follow the thought leader for innovation in the metals industry working as the catalyst to transform the industry. Innovation is disruption – the sooner we understand and accept it, the greater the outcomes we can produce and control.
