Welcome to the website of the Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA)! Our mission is to promote the design and construction of metal building systems in the low-rise, non-residential building marketplace.
MBMA was founded in 1956 by a group of companies that developed an innovative way of designing, manufacturing and marketing buildings. Since its inception, MBMA has been instrumental in defining and promoting the common interests of metal building systems manufacturers. MBMA has also provided engineering leadership through the many research programs we sponsor. This research is used by the MBMA members to improve the efficiency and quality of metal building systems, and to elevate the state-of-the-art technology used to produce them.
Metal building systems are used in almost every conceivable application. You will find them in industrial applications such as complex production facilities, warehouses and distribution centers. They are used in retail stores, shopping centers, motels, automobile dealerships, office complexes, airplane hangars and arenas. They are also used in schools, libraries, churches, medical facilities and government buildings.
Over the years, the MBMA has contributed significantly to the design community by producing technical publications to assist in the proper design and specification of metal building and roofing systems. The organization has also consistently promoted the benefits of metal building systems to architects, building code officials, community planning consultants and other construction professionals.
