The UK Gasket & Sealing Association (UKGSA) is a trade association representing the specialised interests of companies engaged in the conversion of materials into gaskets and seals for all types of industrial use.
We welcome new members, so if you have any questions regarding membership please get in touch.
Networking Events – serving our members with activities designed to promote success and growth, through collaboration and best practice. The Association aims to provide a platform for members to network with decision makers and influencers at the highest level and across all sectors of our industry.
Technical Events – industrial and manufacturing tours or presentations to member and non-member sites. These events aim to give insights to advanced manufacturing, best practice and material technical developments that will inspire our membership.
Technical Support – members have access to an unprecedented technical resource in their fellow members who are available to offer support on manufacturing issues, material selection and processing, and design & development.
Representing our Members – Behind the scenes, we actively promote our members’ activities and views through press releases to national and international trade magazines and general media. We represent our industry to various technical bodies on international standards and actively look for opportunities to promote our values. We aim to proactively promote our members’ views to government and trade bodies and influence the decisions of those organisations to the benefit of our members.
Marketing Support – We actively use social media (Twitter and LinkedIn) and encourage all of our members to follow us. We also publish member profiles and case studies on our website in addition to sharing news stories.
We are extremely active in developing strong media relationships with all of the mainstream manufacturing and engineering publications. We also send out regular email newsletters to our members and our wider industry contacts with a variety of information as well as member news features.
Procurement Support – Through our affiliation with the British Standards Institute, members are able to acquire electronic copies of UK, European and International Standards at discounted prices.
Members have access to the Joined Up Thinking Buying Group giving access to hundreds of suppliers, products and services which are being constantly benchmarked to make sure members receive the very best value for money. This service is offered by Joined Up Thinking and is free of charge to members.
