CEDA is teaming up with three of its allied partners to launch a member recruitment campaign targeting small service companies in the New Year.
The distribution body plans to distribute 10,000 invitations to potential members during January and February with the help of First Choice Catering Spares, Commercial Catering Spares and Mechline Developments.
CEDA claims it can offer small service companies annual access to the group for the equivalent of less than £1 a day.
Peter Kay, director of technical support at CEDA, says its ties to bodies such as CESRB, WRAS and the Gas Safe Register means it can provide value to small services businesses under pressure to ensure compliance with current practices.
“As an association, we have real potential to be an influencer on standards and regulations that directly affect service companies and their engineers,” he said. “Our combined knowledge and authority means that for smaller service members, being a part of the association can provide the support and knowledge required in this changeable sector of the equipment industry.”
Kay says membership can also generate additional business opportunities through other CEDA members who do not have their own service and installation engineers.
“These members are committed to ensuring that they only use qualified sub-contractors and naturally they turn to the service members in the knowledge that they meet all their requirements,” he said.
