THE METAL Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) has taken the decision to open up its membership to system installers.
Installers who are involved in industrial, commercial and warehouse construction, together with the rural and agricultural building sectors are being invited as part of the association’s drive to raise standards and ensure compliance across the industry.
A statement from the body read: “The construction sector has recently come under heightened scrutiny and improved technical and commercial communication across those who work in the industry linked with formal training, qualifications and quality assurance, at all levels, is now high on the agenda from government, control bodies, third party assessors and businesses involved from the initial design stage to operational use for all building types and sectors.”
Discussion forum for the trade
It continued: “To achieve this, MCRMA now wishes to offer annual membership to systems installers which will allow them to integrate into the leading trade association.
“MCRMA provides a forum for discussion about significant industry issues, input into key industry matters such as development of regulations and standards, participation in the improvement of the supply chain and provides access to a range of training courses.”
The organisation represents, promotes and supports the interests of systems manufacturers, component suppliers, independent roofing and cladding inspectors and industry support services suppliers, as well as system installers who provide building envelope solutions for metal-based roofing and cladding products and services.
