VDMA Associations: Your Topics – Our Experts

38 VDMA associations represent the interests of companies from the individual engineering sectors within and beyond the association. Thus the VDMA covers the entire process chain of the capital goods industry, from the component to the plant, from system suppliers to system integrators and service providers. The VDMA network offers excellent opportunities for partnership and cooperation.

The collaboration of the individual associations is intensified by cross-industry working groups, panels and projects.

The VDMA has dense information networks at the European level as well. A large number of European associations represent the interests of the individual engineering sectors at the European level.

The VDMA on the Spot for You

In touch with latest developments – the VDMA represents economic, technological and political interests of the engineering industry in Frankfurt, Brussels, Berlin and other VDMA locations worldwide. The regional associations of the VDMA in Baden-Wurttemberg, Bavaria, Central Germany, Northern Germany, North Rhine-Westphalia and Eastern Germany establish direct contact to local partners and represent the interests of the engineering industry vis-à-vis the German Lander governments.

The VDMA maintains an intense exchange with economic decision makers and multipliers in Berlin and Brussels.

The VDMA offices in China, India, Japan, Russia and Brazil support the operations of VDMA members in major export markets. The VDMA liaison offices act as contact on the spot and work closely with the foreign branches of the member companies.

Cross Sections, Committees and Working Groups

As an industry-driven organisation with more than 500 employees the VDMA supports its members in their daily tasks no matter whether they arise from legal affairs, taxation, human resources, European regulations or other issues. The cross-sections advise members on general topics, developments and strategies. With central commissions and working groups the VDMA offers additional platforms for the exchange of ideas and information between the various industrial sectors.


Services Provided to our Members

Insurance benefits, customised publishing offers and attractive seminar programs complete the profile of the VDMA. The VDMA also runs a variety of foundations to promote science, education and technology.
