UK WEIGHING FEDERATION AND GAMBICA ANNOUNCE NEW PARTNERSHIP
30th Mar 2021
We are delighted to announce that the UK Weighing Federation (UKWF) has agreed a partnership with GAMBICA, the trade association for Instrumentation, Control, Automation and Laboratory Technology in the UK, to bring even more benefits to UKWF members.
The new partnership will allow the two organisations to share knowledge, expertise, and industry insights, and means UKWF members will benefit from a number of additional business services including HR, tax, and legal advice.
In addition, it will give the UKWF access to market trends and data, information about new technology, changes in standards and regulations, and briefings on industry issues, all of which will be passed onto UKWF members.
Graham Spink, President of the UKWF, explains:
“The UKWF is the voice of legal metrology in the UK and represents a diverse range of member companies. We are dedicated to ensuring that all of our members continue to get real value from their membership and believe this partnership is a key step forward for the Federation.
“Partnering with GAMBICA will allow the UKWF and its members to become part of a community of related industries where we can gain additional industry knowledge, have access to more information, and strengthen our established relationships with our government stakeholders.
“GAMBICA has a large network of members across a mix of organisations, so we are looking forward to connecting with them, as well as working collaboratively with GAMBICA to lobby Government on legal metrology policy on behalf of our members.”
Steve Brambley, Chief Executive of GAMBICA, commented:
“I’m really delighted to form this collaborative partnership between GAMBICA and the UKWF. It will bring mutual benefit to both associations, strengthening the voice of our industries, sharing expertise, and broadening our community.
“As we seek to continue our influence on UK policy, regulation, and standards in a post-Brexit landscape, adding the voice of the weighing industry will enrich the evidence to support our positions.
“I look forward to working together and creating opportunities for collaboration on webinars, events, guidance and consultations.”
