CEA Logo

MPA Group are delighted to have partnered with the Construction Equipment Association (CEA) to support innovation in the sector.

Who are the CEA?

The CEA represents the UK construction equipment sector and is recognised nationwide as the voice of the industry. As members of the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE) their influence is felt worldwide through their technical, regulatory and international trade work. CEA work with Government and EU institutions to ensure that they recognise the importance and value of the Construction Equipment industry in the provision of jobs, investment and its contribution to construction sector.

Their members can draw on a wide range of services such as technical and regulatory advice to national and international trade shows; designed to promote the performance of the UK construction equipment industry.

Why did we partner with the CEA?

With investment in UK infrastructure set to include, £48 billion in rail, £30 billion in roads, £1.7 billion in prisons and £1.5 million new homes by 2022; there is terrific potential in the UK construction equipment market at the moment. As with most industries, there has been uncertainty caused by BREXIT, however by partnering with the CEA we hope to encourage continued innovation within the industry.

It’s a great pleasure to be working with the CEA. Innovation is vital to remain competitive on an international scale, the sector already invests over £200 million a year into R&D, and we’ve seen how additional funds received through HMRC concessions have helped businesses build market leading positions. We’re delighted with the opportunity this partnership presents to CEA members.
