When business thrives, communities prosper and Scotland benefits. We connect Scottish industry to the resources they need to thrive. By supporting Scottish industry we’re helping you create a resilient, skilled economy to compete on the world stage.


For over 150 years we’ve connected Scottish industry to expert knowledge, advice and supply chain opportunities at home and abroad. Now we connect you to industry information, FAQs, templates and downloads 24 hours a day through our online members portal


When we work together, we make huge leaps where individuals make steps. We collaborate with political leaders, industry bodies and regulators at all levels to give our members influence over industry-related issues locally, nationally and internationally.


By celebrating the achievements of our members, we give credit where it’s due and raise the profile of industry in Scotland. We use our position of influence in the eyes of the media to connect Scottish industry to the public so they have a positive impression of the sector and its benefits.


Learning is the key to a prosperous future. The training we facilitate develops skills for all levels of staff and management and encourages a culture of best practice sharing amongst members. We go further, giving members access to top talent through our active involvement with educational establishments including primary schools through to higher and further education.
