The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) serves as the voice of the metal building systems industry, providing leadership, research and education to increase the prominence and usage of metal building systems. MBMA plays a leading role in research and engineering and helps to improve codes and standards.
For over 60 years, the MBMA and its members have worked together as partners to further their mission: to conduct research, to help advance building codes and standards, and to educate the construction community. Our passion is to support a strong, sustainable metal building systems industry that meets the needs of owners and communities. Metal building systems are far more sophisticated today than they were decades ago; and due to MBMA’s research programs, additional evolution is not far down the road. MBMA has invested heavily in engineering technology, fabrication concepts, structural improvements and building quality. As a result, buildings today are far better in terms of cost, strength, function, aesthetics and sustainability.
MBMA has two membership categories: Building Systems members and Associate members. Building Systems members provide the engineering design and fabrication of structural steel framing systems, metal roofing, wall systems and accessory equipment for low-rise, non-residential construction projects. MBMA Building Systems member firms employ more than 12,000 people in 65 worldwide manufacturing plants. These firms engage in the design, manufacture, and sale of metal building systems. A current list of Building Systems members can be found on the MBMA website (www.mbma.com).
The MBMA Associate membership program was developed to serve the industry’s ancillary manufacturers and suppliers. Associate members help shape MBMA’s direction and activities through such affiliations as the Associate Member Advisory Council. This council is composed of a broad cross section of members, each from a major product category. A current list of Associate members can be found on the MBMA website (www.mbma.com).
All members of the Metal Building Manufacturers Association are committed to sustainable development, to continuous improvement in safety and health, and to achieving an injury-free workplace.
