The strength of the DHMA
A wide and active network
Together, DHMA members have an enormous amount of knowledge and expertise. We make each other stronger through knowledge-sharing sessions, workshops, study trips, projects and company visits.
Strong external profiling
As an industry, we make sure there is healthy competition in the international market. We love challenges and we like to ensure that our clients can rely on good, fast service at a reasonable price.
Ordinary members are companies whose main or subsidiary activities involve the performance of heavy machining operations in larger dimensions for external third companies or for their own production. Your company is also a member of Koninklijke Metaalunie.

Centre lathe turning > 5000 mm turning length
Carousel turning > 2500 mm diameter
Milling / Boring > 3000 mm
Grinding > 3000 mm
Honing >1500 mm
Extraordinary Extraordinary membership
Extraordinary members are companies that meet the membership criteria of an ordinary member. However, these companies are NOT members of Koninklijke Metaalunie, but are affiliated to another general employers’ organisation in the metalworking industry.
Associate Associate membership
Associate members are companies that do not meet the criteria of an ordinary or an extraordinary membership of the DHMA. However, affiliation with the DHMA is considered to be desirable, owing to mutual interests.
Special terms apply to this membership and acceptance can only take place after approval of your membership request by the DHMA board. These companies are listed in the Commercial Register of the Chamber of Commerce.
