UK’s fastest growing marine trade association

Our diverse membership includes manufacturers with a 99% share of UK Ship Production and equipment manufacturers, service providers, research institutes, and of course Shipyards and Commercial boat builders.

SSA supports the marine industry with the aim of improving performance and company profile, creating business opportunities, providing access to funding and industry expertise.
We organise numerous industry events and networking opportunities as well as holding national pavilions at several key industry exhibitions worldwide.

SSA works alongside the Ministry of Defence dealing with their naval procurement and research programmes, the Department of Energy and Climate Change which is taking forward the UK Renewable Energy Strategy. We also work with Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS), which influences the sector’s development through its facilitation of the Marine Industries Leadership Council (MILC).
