The Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) represents, promotes and defends the interests of systems manufacturers, component suppliers, independent roofing and cladding inspectors and industry support services suppliers who provide products, systems and services within the non-domestic metal roof and wall market sector.
MCRMA membership is open only to those companies who operate and comply with the requirements of the MCRMA Membership Charter; a Charter which reflects and underpins the philosophy and principles of the leading manufacturers, component suppliers and industry consultants whose products and systems are associated with the construction of the building envelope.
As the voice for the industry, MCRMA works closely with a variety of industry bodies and Standards committees to develop building envelope solutions and to disseminate best practice, ensuring that its members operate to the highest standards at all times.
MCRMA members are regarded as the premier suppliers of goods and service to the non-domestic building envelope sector and are known for their ability to speak with authority, have a full and unequalled knowledge of their business sector and without doubt offer reliability to their customers.
If you share this philosophy then we would be delighted to hear from you!

The Association has updated its Membership Charter to reflect the current concerns of the industry with particular reference to health and safety and environmental issues. In the new Charter, the MCRMA will ensure that its members undertake all work in accordance with relevant health and safety legislation and have a health and safety policy which they uphold both in principle and practice.
In addition, members are required to have due regard for environmental issues during procurement, delivery (including installation implementation) and waste disposal and members are committed to using /their best endeavours to minimise adverse environmental impact in the provision of their products and/or services. The environmental and sustainable benefits of metal are now recognised by clients, designers and engineers alike and have led to a much wider use of metal in construction. MCRMA and its members will show specifiers how to create imaginative and innovative building designs that offer cost-effective and sustainable solutions which will benefit future generations.
As the premier suppliers of metal roofing and cladding materials and services for the building envelope to the non-domestic sector, MCRMA members are recognised for their ability to speak with authority on building envelope design, have a full and unequalled knowledge of their business sector and offer complete reliability to their customers.
