The Metal Gutter Manufacturers Association was formed in 1994 to represent the leading manufacturers of metal rainwater systems. Membership of MGMA is open to all companies who manufacture and market metal rainwater systems, downpipes and their associated fittings. In addition, membership is open to those companies who provide a range of professional support services to the metal rainwater systems industry.
The Association seeks to foster and take part in research and all forms of technical development in relation to metal rainwater systems and to encourage the best methods of their production and use with the construction and allied industries.
MGMA offers an online CPD programme which is open to anyone seeking to develop their knowledge and skills within the metal rainwater systems sector. The CPDs are flexible and provide ‘learning on the go’ as the course material can be studied both online and offline, on mobiles, tablets and print. There is an online assessment component to verify knowledge and following the successful online completion of a CPD, a certificate can be downloaded for the user’s personal records.
The Association has produced a Membership Charter to reflect the current concerns of the industry with particular reference to technical ethos, health and safety and environmental issues. In accordance with the Charter, the MGMA 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 minimising adverse environmental impact in the provision of their products and/or services.
The MGMA is the only organisation which represents the major manufacturers and is, therefore, a valuable source of
information and advice on all matters relating to metal rainwater systems.
Note: If you require a quotation or details of an installation contractor then please contact an MGMA member company.
