Becoming A Member
FTMA membership is open to all companies involved in the frame and truss industry in New Zealand.
The FTMA currently represents a group of 72 Fabricator and 18 Industry Associate members who are leading the way forward in our timber framing industry. We continue to work tirelessly to ensure prefabricated timber wall frames and roof trusses remain the preferred choice for building in New Zealand.
We are also in regular communication with our members around legislative changes; the vast majority of our members are small operators, with anywhere from five to 20 staff, and are not always in a position, or have the time to investigate and understand the implications of legislative changes on their businesses.
Our access to Government via our membership of BIF allows us to hear of changes to regulations at their earliest stages.
