Organisation

The European Federation EUROM was founded in Brussels in 1958, shortly after the establishment of the European Community.

EUROM represents the interests of manufacturers in the European precision mechanical and optical industries in dealings with the EU Commission and other European, national and international institutions.

The European precision mechanical and optical industries have developed over many centuries through the utilisation of a strong science base and of precision engineering skills. They now form one of the most innovative and efficient industrial sectors in the European Economic Area, with a key function as a supplier of high-tech components, instruments, systems and large-scale installations. Precision engineering, process automation and manufacturing processes are becoming more complex, requiring highly complex, integrated instruments and control systems which include management information systems and are capable of improving the competitiveness of European industry. Although a relatively small market sector it is a provider of key enabling technologies essential to the sustainability and growth of many other major market sectors.

In EUROM’s view it is a fundamental responsibility of the Commission and Council of the European Union to maintain fair conditions of competition both among the European Member States on the one hand and, within the framework of the EU external trade relations, with third countries on the other.

EUROM is therefore actively engaged in Europe as a representative of the precision mechanical and optical industries.

The European Industrial Federation EUROM consists of 3 active branch committees:

  • EUROM I Optical Industries
  • EUROM II Optics, Laser & Laboratory Technology
  • EUROM VI Medical Technology

 

Members

Members of EUROM are the professional organisations which represent the precision mechanical and optical industries in their respective countries and their member companies.

The European trade associations are responsible for determining, co-ordinating and representing the interests of their members in dealings with third parties. They therefore provide a major vehicle for the active participation of their members in the development of a viable European economic policy.

The members of EUROM belong to the following EU-member states :

  • Germany
  • France
  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Great Britain
  • Belgium
  • Luxemburg
  • Netherlands
  • Denmark
  • Ireland
  • Switzerland

Objectives

The object of EUROM is to represent the joint interests of the precision mechanical and optical industries and to promote cooperation amongst the members especially on the following issues, based upon the EUROM statutes :

  • Commercial policy
  • Sales promotion
  • Collection of European market data
  • Research and development
  • Regulatory affairs
  • Public relations work

Transparency Register

The European Federation of Precision, Mechanical and Optical Industries is registrated in the Transparency register of the EU.
