Association

ECS – About us

The European Engineered Construction Systems Association e.V. (ECS), which is based in Düsseldorf, Germany, was founded by leading companies in this market segment. Together, they present their range of systems to partners in the marketplace and are dedicated to products of outstanding quality.

The association wants to promote quality in the market segment, point on safety and flexibility in building technique and present a high-performance and innovative industry.

The member companies distinguish themselves by their quality policy and the following common criteria:

  • Certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001
  • A research and development department
  • Production of the core product range in Europe and in their own manufacturing plants
  • Participation in major industry events and active participation in associations
  • A high degree of quality and customer support via internal and external technical staff in Germany and every country in which they manufacture and sell.

 


ECS – Consult, train, support

The ECS provides information about safe and proven techniques and products in the field of fixing, reinforcing and façade systems as well as innovations and improvements in those areas. Activities focus on consulting, training and supporting users – planners, architects and engineers – as well as representing the interests in various associations and organisations on national and European level. Thereby, active participation in European standardisation committees is an important task.

Through its activities, the ECS raises the awareness in market for high quality products. It shows the significance of in-house research and development to business and users. ECS members develop and distribute modern alternatives to conventional construction techniques, thereby increase construction safety and make an efficient contribution on the building process.

ECS – Research, develop, certify

Member companies of the ECS do not relate quality only to materials and the fabrication of their products, but also to their services and product safety. All companies offer highest quality. In-house research and development departments work on better and more economically efficient technologies and optimise existing products. The quality policy of the companies becomes visible to the customer via

  • certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and the associated internal and external controls
  • detailed product documentation and planning tools as well as comprehensive support and advice by the technical service department.

Membership in the association is open to all companies in the field of fixing, reinforcing and façade systems, which meet the common requirements of the ECS and satisfy all the quality criteria.

The ECS started in April 1st 2014 as European trade association its operational business work. It represents the interests of its eleven member companies consisting of well-known manufacturers in European construction industry.

Main target is to promote and develop reinforcement construction methods. In the global business competition, ECS campaigns sustainable solutions with high-quality products and engineering services. The commitment varies from collaboration in European standardization commitees to European certification. Research and development are further activities.

Furthermore, the ECS offers various consulting activities, training, education and tools for architects, engineers, planners, civil engineers, prefabrication plants and technical education institutes/universities.
