Metal Building Manufacturers Association

MBMA was founded in 1956 by a group of companies that developed an innovative way of designing, manufacturing and marketing buildings. Since its inception, MBMA has been instrumental in defining and promoting the common interests of metal building systems manufacturers. MBMA has also provided engineering leadership through the many research programs we sponsor. This research is used by the MBMA members to improve the efficiency and quality of metal building systems, and to elevate the state-of-the-art technology used to produce them.

Metal building systems are used in almost every conceivable application. You will find them in industrial applications such as complex production facilities, warehouses and distribution centers. They are used in retail stores, shopping centers, motels, automobile dealerships, office complexes, airplane hangars and arenas. They are also used in schools, libraries, churches, medical facilities and government buildings.

Over the years, the MBMA has contributed significantly to the design community by producing technical publications to assist in the proper design and specification of metal building and roofing systems. The organization has also consistently promoted the benefits of metal building systems to architects, building code officials, community planning consultants and other construction professionals.

Metals Service Center Institute

The Metals Service Center Institute (MSCI) is a trade association that supports and represents the most elements of the metals value chain, including metals producers, distributors, and processors and, to a lesser extent, the interests of metals users.

Because its primary membership consists of metals service centers – businesses that inventory and distribute metals for industrial customers and perform first-stage processing – MSCI is ideally situated to identify and respond to the networking, educational, public policy, and research needs of the entire metals community, and not just a narrow portion of it.

MSCI has more than 350 members operating from about 1,200 locations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and elsewhere around the world. Together, MSCI members constitute the largest single group of metals purchasers in North America, amounting each year to more than 75 million tons of steel, aluminum and other metals, with about 300,000 manufacturers and fabricators as customers.
