 Defense Manufacturers Association

"The Defence Manufacturers Association (DMA) represents the interests of all sectors of the British Defence Industry to UK and Overseas Government bodies and Defence Contractors.

Established in 1976, it is a non profit making trade association with a Membership of over 370 companies. It provides focus for action and advice to an industry that employs over 400,000 people, which is approximately 10 per cent of the UK's industrial workforce.

It is governed by a Council of 20 elected representatives from Member companies and manages a number of committees and special interest groups. These not only help to provide focus within the industry but can play a key role in helping the UK Government develop policy. Advice on representation, contracts, procurement, exporting, the provision of marketing intelligence and the organisation of seminars, group exhibition attendance and missions are just some of the activities undertaken by the DMA.

Dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of the UK Defence Industry to both National Security and the economy, it is frequently asked to make submissions to the UK House of Commons and Parliamentary groups. It also undertakes lobbying on behalf of its Membership and, through education, strives to ensure that the industry and its activities are accurately represented."
