The AEMT represents the leading companies in the UK and internationally, who supply, install, maintain, service and repair, electric motors, pumps, gearboxes, fans, generators, transformers, and switchgear. They supply and maintain inverters, and carry out repairs to industrial electronic equipment. Increasingly companies are involved with the total management of these assets providing predictive maintenance, preventative maintenance, and condition monitoring. The members are in contact with all major companies and their maintenance engineers, and normally provide them with a 24 hour emergency service.
The Association, which consists of over 200 companies operating from over 330 locations internationally, represents the Service and Repair Industry. There are approximately 40 supply companies, who are Associate members of the AEMT. They include the manufacturers of equipment and suppliers of repair materials to the Industry. Hazardous Area members are companies not covered in the above, but have an interest in the areas covered by the members and associates, either as users, utilities, or consultants.
The AEMT was formed in 1945 to enable the Repair Industry to work with other Trade Associations and Government Departments. Since that time the Association has constantly updated its approach and standards to meet the changes that have taken place over the last 64 years, and today is in the forefront of developing repair standards, efficiency programmes, and training courses, in partnership with Government agencies and a wide range of service and manufacturing industries.
The AEMT is the Trade Association for all companies who supply, repair, or service, electrical & mechanical equipment. The Association provides opportunities for discussion between the different engineering disciplines through its regional and national meetings. Membership of the AEMT represents an obligation to industry, commerce, and the public, to maintain the highest business integrity, technical ability, and quality of service. Members are therefore expected to conform strictly to the AEMT Code of Business Practice.
A wide selection of training courses are available to members, particularly on Hazardous Area Equipment Repair. A new facility designed for electrical and mechanical training courses was opened in 2008, located at Loughborough College. The industry apprentice scheme is based there.
