Orgalime is the European Engineering industry association representing the interests at the level of the EU institutions of the European mechanical, electrical, electronic and metal articles industries in 22 countries.
Orgalime's member federations directly or indirectly represent some 130,000 companies of an industry which employs 9.7 million people.
The companies which are overwhelmingly small and medium-sized enterprises cover a broad industry cross-section in terms of product, market segment and geographical spread.
The engineering industry is the largest industrial branch in the EU, with a turnover in the order of 1,510 billion euro in 2010. The industry accounts for some 28% of the EU's manufactured output and a third of manufactured exports.
If a significant part of the output of the engineering industries are either capital goods or destined for B-2-B transactions, there is also a large consumer goods output, particularly in the electrical and electronic branch.
