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.
