    Benefits of being an NAA member according to Martyn Cray

    Martyn Cray, the NAA’s Business Development Manager, gives us his views on some of the key benefits of being an NAA member

    • Networking events – allow members to engage with other companies within the North West automotive community.
    • Access Financial Support – the NAA can guide members to access funding that best suits their specific needs.
    • Learn from exclusive factory visits – NAA members can benefit from exclusive factory tours that would be impossible to access without being an NAA member.
    • Knowledge Transfer – we keep our members informed via the website and e-newsletters on the latest regional, national and international auto industry developments.
    • Events and Exhibition support – we support our members showcase their products at events and exhibitions both at home and abroad and have connections into UKTI to allow our members to take part in foreign trade missions.
    • Training and development – members can access a wide range of training programmes at preferential rates.
    • Annual Dinner and Awards – this event, as well as being a high profile networking event, also recognises the work done by our members throughout the year in the form of sponsored awards.
    • Signposting – from the point of view of an automotive supply chain SME, there is an overwhelming number of business support organisations – the NAA has the knowledge to ‘filter’ these and signpost companies to the most relevant ones for their needs
    • Putting suppliers in touch with customers – we introduce our member companies to new customers through regular contact with key purchasing representatives from UK and global OEMs.

    It’s now even easier to join the NAA, and it’s an investment of just a few pounds per week for most supply chain SMEs – sign-up online in just a couple of minutes at:
