About Us

The NZ Stainless Steel Development Association (NZSSDA) was formed in June 1998. It is a " by the industry, for the industry]" association comprising consultants and architects, end-users, fabricators and merchants. All have a vested interest in the supply or application of stainless steels. Our goal is to see greater use of this formidable construction material, particularly as economic and environmental issues place it as an ever-increasingly attractive alternative.

Membership includes discounted access to regular seminars and workshops on materials and relevant issues, bi-monthly members newsletters covering industry news and world trends, the receipt of the bi-annual Stainless NZ publication for own use and distribution.
