Welcome to BEMA

The British Engineering Manufacturers' Association Limited (BEMA) was formed in 1936, and now the largest engineering trade association in the South West of England. We support the demands of industry to benefit the member companies with help, consultancy and training.

BEMA have a dedicated training centre to aid recruitment and the training of apprentices, graduates and the workforce so that industry can combat the shortfall in trained, qualified engineers.
