As the recognised trade association for the EWI industry in the UK INCA, the Insulated Render and Cladding Association, is growing in strength and numbers. As such we get calls from numerous organisations who are thinking about joining but want to know exactly what the benefits are and just what do they get for their money. So … why should you join and just what return can you expect from your investment in INCA?

By joining any trade association, you are demonstrating to the world that you are proud of and actively support the industry you’re in. A good trade association plays a vital role in expertly guiding and influencing policy makers, providing networking opportunities, giving the industry a strong voice when it comes to new legislation, delivering relevant tools such as industry guidance and best practices and in setting the standards of industry excellence.

Joining INCA is no different – whether you are a system designer/supplier, a large national installation contractor, a regional installer focussed on smaller private works, a key component supplier or involved in the EWI industry in any other way the benefits of membership are substantial.
