The European manufacturers of cutting tools and clamping devices and their national associations have joined together in the European association ECTA – European Cutting Tools Association. Getting to know each other, exchanging experiences, co-operating – there are numerous topics which the European companies in the branch urgently want to discuss among themselves, and with their customers, suppliers and co-operation partners. ECTA offers the optimal platform for this.
The principal aim of ECTA is to act as the central organization for furthering the interests of all European cutting tool manufacturing and to take action which may be considered necessary in the interest of the industry and members, including:
Arranging meetings between manufacturers
Providing a forum for the exchange of views
Studying technical problems that are common to the industry
Promoting industry's views to Official Organisations
Providing market information
Fostering a good image for the industry.
Addressing the industry's key role in manufacturing
The key committee of ECTA is the General Assembly. In the General Assembly all Members of the association are represented. Meetings are held once a year, in combination with the ECTA Conferences.
Elected by the General Assembly, the ECTA President and the ECTA Vice President are acting as the official representatives of the association. They are supported by the ECTA Secretary General.
Members of ECTA are the national associations from France (SYMOP), Germany (VDMA), Italy (UCIMU), Spain (AFM), Switzerland (Swissmem) and the United Kingdom (BHECTA c/o MTA). Further Sutton Tools from the Netherlands.
