The Construction Equipment Association (CEA) is the trade association for construction equipment manufacturers, importers, distributors, component and accessory suppliers and service providers. We represent an industry that makes an estimated £11 billion contribution to the UK economy – and provides over 40,000 jobs.
We offer support to our Members on technical and regulatory issues – and are members of the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE), based in Brussels.
Overseas we have helped over 200 companies with their export programmes via official British groups at exhibitions and trade missions. For the UK market we provide networking opportunities for members to develop their business – with contacts up and down the supply chain and customer base. We also provide market information services. The CEA is active on policy issues such as Brexit, industrial strategy, skills and the need for continuing investment in the infrastructure.
CEA members have the opportunity to participate in a range of committees, networking events and information exchanges. Members also qualify for discounts on their participation at PLANTWORX (a CEA show) and our successful anti-plant theft initiative, CESAR. We are also the publishers of CONSTRUCTION WORX magazine.
