The Surface Engineering Association

leading the way in the future of the industry


As a Trade Association, The Surface Engineering Association (SEA) endeavours to be the voice that represents our members in areas surrounding legislation and government that affect our ability to produce and compete successfully in an increasingly competitive global market. We are very proud of the contribution that the UK treatment industries have made to current technology employed around the world and as an association, we work tirelessly to offer our members the very best advice and assistance in all aspects of their activities.

Environmental and Health & Safety issues dominate our industry as legislation continues to be passed down from the EU without any real consideration of its impact on day to day operations. The SEA has been instrumental in making sure that members are kept informed of these changes and are well represented in various forums to protect our members’ interests.

It is no secret that the world economy has been through turmoil in recent times and manufacturing generally has been affected particularly badly during this period. So, now more than ever, we need to stand together as an industry and act collectively to influence serious issues we face.

At our recent House of Lords briefing luncheon meeting, we made some real progress regarding fuel charges, carbon footprint issues and climate change, which is just a flavour of what we can achieve as a group. We have an infrastructure that works; our office is manned by dedicated, helpful and knowledgeable staff who are committed to offering the very best assistance or pointing you in the right direction to get the advice you need.
