MALAYSIAN STRUCTURAL STEEL ASSOCIATION
The Malaysian Structural Steel Association (MSSA) was founded on 8 March 1996 with the aim of developing and promoting the use of structural steel in Malaysia. It is a non-government organization that supports the interests of the construction industry and professionals associated with this industry.
At its crux, is a group of dynamic professionals from both the public and private sectors who share a common vision of establishing structural steel as material of choice for the building and construction industry in Malaysia. It is with their determination and support that MSSA has incorporated the following objectives:
1. To promote and advance the usage of structural steel in the construction, steelworks and oil and gas industry.
2. To promote new and appropriate use of technology, training, research and development and the standardization of design and management in the structural steel industry.
3. To encourage the dissemination of information and exchange of views in the structural steel industry at both national and international levels.
4. To operate as a advisory body, providing advice and information with the objective of enhancing the structural steel industry.
The Association is made up of engineers, fabricators, contractors, architects, designers, surveyors as well as academics and students from several tertiary institutions in the country. As these individuals and their respective organizations continue to offer much more in term of diversity and practicality for the local construction industry, MSSA continues to re-define the industry in terms of providing leadership, enhancing standards and improving construction practice at building sites through the use structural steel.
