Membership Growth Doubles in 2019

ALLMI’s membership continues to rapidly expand, with YTD new member registrations more than double the level for the same period in 2018.   

One member to recently join ALLMI’s fleet owner division is Swindon-based, Bevan Transport.  Managing Director, Paul Bevan, comments “For many years we’ve been putting our staff through ALLMI’s various training programmes and so joining the Association as a member company was a logical step for us to take.  The rigorous application process included a thorough review of our lorry loader activities, ensuring that we operate in line with industry good practice, standards and legislation.  This results in a membership that we can be proud of, giving the company further credibility and enhancing our reputation for quality and safety.”

He continues “We’ve already experienced many of the extensive benefits that membership brings and have been provided with an excellent level of support and guidance since joining, helping us to ensure that our company continues to work to the highest standard at all times, and adopts an ethos of ongoing development.”    

ALLMI CEO, Tom Wakefield, comments “ALLMI membership is something which is earned, and companies work hard to meet and maintain the required standard.  It’s therefore important that the industry recognises the value that should be associated in dealing with an ALLMI member, and the investment in quality that the company will have made to have the right to display the ALLMI logo.”

He continues “We also have a provisional membership category, allowing companies which aren’t quite able to meet the audit requirements to still be a part of the Association, thereby having access to our training, guidance and support.  Importantly, these companies cannot bear the ALLMI logo until full membership has been achieved, but it’s an excellent means of helping them to improve what they do and is another demonstration of ALLMI’s ability to raise industry standards in a very direct and tangible way.”

ALLMI provides membership for: manufacturers / importers; installers; service companies; ancillary equipment suppliers; fleet operators; site operators.  Annual subscriptions start at just £450.  Please click here for further details on how to be a part of the strongest voice in the UK lorry loader industry!
