The SEC Group reflects the combined views of these organisations, notably in the Strategic Forum for Construction, where it is one of two bodies representing specialist contractors (the other is the National Specialist Contractors Council).

It is particularly active in the areas of achieving: more cost effective procurement; fair and prompt payment; and the early involvement of specialist contractors in construction projects, to ensure more effective delivery.

Lift and Escalator Industry Association

The Lift and Escalator Industry Association (LEIA) is an advisory body for the lift and escalator industry. It was formed in 1997 through the merger of two-long standing associations dating back to 1932.[1] They represent around 95% of specialist contractors in its sector.

The LEIA operates Liftex, a trade show and exhibition for the lifts and escalator industry, every three years.[2] The next LEIA exhibition will be Liftex 2019 on 15-16 May 2019.[3] A different exhibition with a similar name is operated by the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association.[4]
