North East

Welcome to ECA's North East Region

ECA’s North East region has an active Membership of 240 companies across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham, Teesside, North East Lincolnshire, and Yorkshire. Members range in size from sole traders to larger companies working in in domestic, commercial, and industrial areas of the industry and are supported by Graeme Watson, North East Regional Manager, Bev Lyne, North East Deputy Regional Manager and Stacey Ward, Business Development Manager (Interim).

We provide support to our Members and have active branch and regional events to enable Members to network, build relationships and get the best from their membership.

In addition, Members have access to one-to-one meetings with Bev, can attend business networking events, social events, and wider industry forums. Regional newsletters help keep Members informed of local, regional, and national initiatives and events. Members are also made aware of any changes which may impact their business whilst providing information on business opportunities and Member discounts.

The ECA North East region holds an annual Business Conference in March and an Overseas Weekend Conference in late September/early October.

ECA North East Region also works closely with specifiers, client bodies and wider industry bodies to promote and assist Members in the region.
