Welcome to the British Gear Association.

The British Gear Association (BGA) is a trade association that promotes the technical and commercial interests of manufacturers, distributors, academics and others involved in the Power Transmissions industry in the United Kingdom.

To do this, we offer our members immediate access to support when it is needed, with frequent events taking place at our facility within Newcastle University. The BGA website also acts as a resource hub, hosting the very latest news and research.


The BGA runs regular training seminars and networking events for our members, providing a chance for individuals and teams to learn and network with the broader membership at locations across the UK.


Get immediate, and free, access to various publications through our online resource centre. Publications on offer include white papers, codes of practice and other documents.

Special Interest Groups

SIG’s are a semi-structured group of BGA members with a common interest in a specific area of technology. The groups provide a forum for BGA members to discuss common problems or topic areas to a common benefit.


The BGA provides support and funding for relevant research projects from our members. Completed projects are available for interested parties to download and view instantaneously.
