Joining the SPOA has many benefits for members

Joining & Memberships

Who is Eligible to Join the SPOA?

We represent the entire Scottish plant industry, with full memberships for all individuals, firms and companies engaged in their own account in owning, hiring, using or operating plant equipment, and also to those engaged in plant services such as training. We are about more than just the hire industry, this is YOUR Association.

You are welcome to apply for full membership if you are an owner operator or a national hirer, a specialist provider or a civils contractor. 

There is also a dedicated membership category for Industry Suppliers available for plant manufacturers and dealers, including companies such as Merlo, Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe, Scot JCB and Geith International.

Associate Membership is open to organisations allied to plant owners, such as insurers, banks, brokers and health and safety providers. Our rules of admission are laid down by the Executive Committee, which reserves the right to amend the rules when deemed necessary.

Call us for more information on 01786 230900.
