Brexit opportunities

22 September, 2016

Now that business is settling down following the EU Referendum, it is time to turn our attention to the future so that the compressed air industry can make the most of any opportunities.


A recent CBI report has highlighted that UK exports are at a two year high and moving forwards the country has the chance to independently renegotiate trade deals both with the EU and other major trading partners. If the compressed air industry is going to make the most of these discussions then end users and suppliers need to come together and act with a united voice.

BCAS represents manufacturers, distributors and end users of compressors, vacuum pumps, pneumatic tools and allied products. This means that it represents the needs of the entire supply chain for compressed air to the United Kingdom and European and overseas institutions.

In addition to unearthing new opportunities, another area that demands attention is BCAS’ ongoing work with international standards and legislation. The UK is recognised for its skills in this area and BCAS continues to be at the heart of the international standards world.

Working as partners with Pneurop, Orgalime and CAGI will ensure that BCAS continues to be a strong partner representing the UK compressed air industry in legislation. It also means that we are in the ideal position to help and advise suppliers and end users to ensure compliance.

BCAS is conducting a survey of its members to ask what they want from Brexit and gauge its likely effect on their businesses. We will publish the results in the next issue of Hydraulics & Pneumatics.
