MRA Marketing joins the Construction Products Association
MRA Marketing has joined the Construction Products Association (CPA) as an Associate. The CPA is the leading industry body that represents UK manufacturers and distributors of construction products and materials. It seeks to gain greater recognition for the sector, grow members’ businesses and reduce their regulatory risks and burden.
MRA Managing Director Lucia Di Stazio comments: “We are extremely pleased to join the CPA. It is a highly focused and proactive association for its members and the wider construction industry. We have been attending CPA networking events for over 10 years, and actively encourage our manufacturing and distributor customers to do the same. We see this as an important step for MRA and we look forward to taking advantage of the many resources and opportunities the CPA brings through membership and in strengthening our relationship with its team.”
The CPA also acts as an ‘umbrella’ trade body for dozens of other industry trade associations including the Building Plastics Federation (BPF), Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB), Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF), Builders’ Merchants Federation (BMF), British Woodworking Federation (BWF), Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP), BRUFMA and NFRC, to mention a few. As an Associate, MRA sits alongside well known organisations such as the BBA, BSI, British Research Establishment (BRE), The Building Centre, Kier Group, NMBS, RIBA and TRADA.
MRA Marketing is in the Top 3 of the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Agency League of the Construction Marketing Awards, and has been for 4 years running. It’s an important year for the full service marketing agency which celebrates 25 years in helping companies and brands grow in construction, building and home improvements. “Joining the CPA is the icing on our cake!” says Lucia.
