About Us

Welcome to the official website of the New Zealand Stainless Steel Development Association (NZSSDA).

We are a member of a global network of Stainless Steel Development Associations with the objective to support and provide Fabricators, Manufacturers, Engineers, Architects and others with access to information on Stainless Steel standards, specifications, fabrication, machining, installation & maintenance, practical training and seminars, as well as links to technical resources.

Please contact us if you have any specific questions or are unable to find the information that you require on our website.

Since our formation in 1999, we have been publishing newsletters promoting both NZ and International applications of stainless steel, as well as regular newsletters to our members. We also network with other NZ industry groups in order to promote the benefits and advantages of using Stainless Steel. Our close association with NZ organisations such as HERA and Metals NZ gives us opportunities for input into decisions regarding national issues such as manufacturing, training, sustainability and zero carbon emissions.

We organise product and training seminars for industry and members covering a wide range of topics, as well as offering preferred access to international webinars.

There are a range of membership options available, with differing benefits associated with each membership level.  Read more to see how your organisation would benefit from joining NZSSDA.
