Promoting Greater use of Stainless Steel in the UK and Ireland

The British Stainless Steel Association is a member based organisation with the purpose of promoting greater use of stainless steel in the UK and Ireland. Its strength lies in the breadth of its membership with companies from all sectors of the industry and all parts of the supply chain. Originally formed as an association of stainless steel fabricators, the BSSA has steadily broadened the scope of its membership and its activities which include technical help and advice, training courses, events, seminars and forums focusing on market development opportunities.

The BSSA has four principle areas of activity:

  • Help and Advice through the Stainless Steel Advisory Service and increasingly via our website,

  • Training and Education, including BSSA Introduction to Stainless Steel - 1 Day Course and Stainless Steel Specialist Course (self-study modules with accompanying training notes).

  • Events - including business forums, seminars, conferences and social functions.

  • Market Development:

o   By working with our membership, government bodies and a wide range of industry organisations to focus on specific initiatives and project work. The BSSA has various internal committees such as Marketing and Technical and the Surface Finishers Section and belongs to wider informal groups addressing issues such as the increased use of stainless steel products in architecture, building and construction.

o   Through our contributions (in conjunction with our members) to standards and guidance documents.

o   Through our 4 module architectural CPD programme.

o   Through the production of targeted publications, for example “Opportunities for Stainless Steel in the Renewable and Low Carbon Energy Sector”.

Benefits of Membership:

  • Your company’s own profile page (see: BSSA Member List) and advertising opportunities on the BSSA website (which currently receives almost 2 million page views per year and appears on the first page of Google when “stainless steel” is searched for). We also display individual member’s news items prominently on our home page.

  • Your products and services listed in our ‘Find a Supplier' guide.

  • Free access to technical advice from the Stainless Steel Advisory Service.

  • Sales leads; the BSSA receives hundreds of product or service sourcing enquiries each year and member companies are always recommended first.

  • A quarterly E-newsletter, keeping you up to date with new developments in the market and industry events and providing opportunities to contribute articles.

  • Discounts on all BSSA products and services, including publications, training courses, seminars and networking events.

  • Networking with other companies throughout the stainless steel supply chain.

  • Statistical market analysis.

And, on behalf of its members the BSSA is an active member of:

  • The Metals Forum which comprises the leading metal related trade associations. The aim of the members of the MF is to gain greater recognition by government and other key institutions of the size and significance of the metals industry to the UK economy.

  • Euro Inox – the European Stainless Steel Development Association.

  • The ISSF, the International Stainless Steel Forum.

  • The Confederation of British Industry (CBI).
