What's all the noise about?

The GMA has teamed up with Earlsmere Ltd, the UKs leading provider of noise and vibration testing services, to give a special offer to GMA members. The discounted price service, which includes many additional benefits, is being trialled with GMA members at elite sports clubs and members of our new Independent Schools category launched in May 2016.

The GMA works to support the safety and well-being of our members and at the same time, help them save money. Earlsmere are providing a 15 per cent discount on vibration and noise testing of equipment alongside vibration training packages, saving of £225 on the standard package price £1,495.

In addition, free machinery maintenance and usage software TOOLMINDER, as well as, the club’s or school’s actual test data uploaded into the system - at no extra cost.

Obviously, if the scope of work for a site is more, then Earlsmere will quote accordingly and a discount will be applied saving you even more.

Since launching this pilot at SALTEX the Earlsmere team have been busy, several Premier League clubs have already taken advantage of this offer, as Director Jeremy Hoyle explains “we have already conducted testing for Man Utd, Man City, Southampton and are preparing quotes for other clubs as well as the AELTC.”

But it’s not just GMA member at sports clubs, members of the GMAs new Independent Schools category have also been invited to benefit from the cost saving. “We’ve delivered testing at St George’s School, and Ashville College and I’ve also received more enquiries this week” said Jeremy.

The GMA is committed to supporting the health, safety and wellbeing of our members in the environments they work in. This member benefit is designed for sites that have large amounts of kit typically over 20 items, but smaller sites can also take part. We are really pleased it has been welcomed as a useful service by members and we look forward to more clubs and our Independent School category members, taking part in the pilot.
