At this year’s Air-Tech exhibition (running 10-12 April 2017), the British Compressed Air Society is offering 12 months’ free associate membership – worth £975.

Relaunched for this year’s show, the offer is available exclusively to customers of current BCAS members and has proved popular with many end-users already.

Free membership provides UK companies with a whole host of BCAS benefits including discounts on training and publications, as well as access to compressed air codes of practice and the society’s social events.

Commenting on the offer, Vanda Jones, BCAS executive director, said: “For those who use compressed air, there are many benefits to be gained by becoming a member the British Compressed Air Society.

“BCAS membership gives access to a comprehensive range of products and support services, which have been developed specifically to meet the needs of the compressed air and vacuum industry. Put simply, it can help companies perform better and raise their profile. It also enables companies to get involved with the industry’s engineering and technology community, from networking to contributing to government consultations and submissions.

“We have created a portfolio of membership benefits, which are designed to provide the knowledge, tools and advice to help companies be more productive, competitive and ultimately more profitable.” 

BCAS will also be showcasing its training courses available for compressed air and vacuum service and sales engineers and end-users too. These include the ‘Working Safely with Compressed Air’ course; a 60-minute online course showing compressed air users how to work safely and understand the risks involved if good practice is not followed.

Specialist courses are tailored to the needs of industry professionals, end users and suppliers; to combine the safe working and understanding of compressed air and its multiple uses. All BCAS training partners are experts in their fields with most of them having many years of experience in the occupations that they teach.
