Master Builders' Association Western Cape

The Master Builders and Allied Trades' Association Western Cape, known to most as "the MBA", is a registered trade association for the employers in the building industry.

Its membership comprises some 400 companies in the Western Cape, most of whom are either builders, building subcontractors, building merchants or manufacturers of building products.

The Association was founded in 1891 and is, therefore, the oldest organisation of its kind in South Africa.  It is affiliated to Master Builders South Africa (MBSA), but is totally autonomous.

The MBA's primary objective is to ensure that the reputation of the building industry in this area remains high and that investment in building is therefore attracted to it.

It does this by insisting and its members work to the highest possible standards, aesthetically, technically and ethically - in short, that they conduct their business in a thoroughly professional mannger at all times.

Membership of the MBA is on a voluntary basis.  Its members handle some 70% of all the building work in the Western Cape and employ a similar percentage of the total building industry workforce.

Apart from campaigning tirelessly for continually higher standards, the Association also plays an active role in labour relations, the drawing up and adaptation of the building contract law, safety procedures and, most importantly, training.

In the last field, particularly, the MBA Western Cape has for many years been the acknowledged leader.  Some 50% of all the training done for the building industry nationwide takes place in the Western Cape - and it has a proud tradition of producing skilled and semi-skilled people who have worked on major projects all over Southern Africa.

Because of its insistence on high standards, the MBA is always ready to attend to complaints about any of its members.  For this reason - and the reasons given above - when using an MBA member the general public can, in most instances, rely on getting an extremely fair deal.
