The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) is established across the globe as the leading representative body for all those involved in the lifting industry worldwide.
We are the respected and authoritative representative body for our Members who work in every aspect of the industry, from design, manufacture, refurbishment and repair, through to the hire, maintenance and use of lifting equipment.
Our Association has played a key role in this specialised field for over half a century, from training and standards setting through to health and safety, the provision of technical and legal advice, and the development of examination and licensing systems.
We represent our Members at the highest levels across a range of both public and private bodies, including various government departments, as well as nationally and internationally recognised professional and technical institutions.
History of the LEEA
The LEEA was founded in 1944 as the Chain Testers' Association of Great Britain.
The name was changed to its present one in 1988 to more accurately reflect the activities of our world-wide Membership.
On 1st January 2000 we became a company limited by guarantee and we are owned and financed by our Members.
