As a non-profit-making business association, EMISA represents the interests of independent manufacturers, suppliers, and service providers operating in the marine engine and related equipment markets.
EMISA aims to support its goals by lobbying with organizations involved in the IMO, the EU, and other related national bodies and ministries. Additionally, EMISA provides advice and information on legal matters to prevent or protect its members from falling victim to aggressive anti-competitive actions that larger corporations within the industry may undertake. EMISA also serves as a platform for exchanging ideas and experiences and staying updated on the latest developments in the field. Its independent member companies are known for their value, reliability, and service and fully embrace EMISA’s Code of Ethics.
The Alliance – our message
EMISA protects the existence of independent companies as an integral part of the aftermarkets for various industrial machines. The existence of independent operators also means more choices for customers and ensures their freedom to choose who they work with without becoming forced to work with a single provider.
Working with independent operators means:
- good quality
- knowledge and expertise in certain equipment models or even specific parts
- minimizing waste through reconditioning and remanufacturing
- giving equipment a second life
We create an Alliance of organizations representing independent operators’ interests. As an Alliance, we plan to approach the European Union with a proposal to establish rules ensuring independent operators can continue doing business in a digital world.
INJEGOV SA, as a proud EMISA Member since 2016, shares the alliance’s core values and aims and works together towards the common goal of free and fair competition.
Right to Repair Alliance
EMISA has been working on creating an Alliance of organizations representing independent companies dealing with industrial machinery with a long lifespan in a business-to-business context. The reason is the increasing difficulties of independent companies in accessing the equipment they are to service or repair, mainly due to the digitalization of marine equipment. The issue is also present in other industries, making the Alliance a cooperative effort from maritime, agriculture, power generation, aviation, and other sectors.
