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. Please see the Key Benefits page.
