Memberships and Professional Organisations

The PROFIBUS UK Group

PROFIBUS UK Logo

Hitex UK is a proud member of the PROFIBUS UK Group, and has been since the beginning of 2011. Despite being relatively new members, we have found PI UK to be a highly organized body, with a good membership of key industry players and  well-established training infrastructure.

PROFIBUS UK is a very active organisation representing the needs of members and PROFIBUS and PROFINET users throughout the United Kingdom and other English-speaking countries. With their world-renowned Competence Centre at Manchester Metropolitan University they run many events including Certified PROFIBUS & PROFINET Engineer and Installer courses, commissioning and maintenance courses and courses covering system and product design.

They also present a number of free-to-attend seminars around the country covering practical aspects of PROFIBUS and PROFINET in Process and Factory Automation as well as subjects such as functional safety and system security.

Members enjoy many benefits such as free access to all the PROFIBUS and PROFINET documentation, discount on training and consultancy and selected products, participation in events and access to the Members' Forum on the website. 

If you would like to find out more about our involvement with the group please contact Dave Tomlindfittes(at)hitex.co.uk?subject=PI%20Group%20Enquiry%20. Alternatively, further information can be found on the PROFIBUS website here.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is one of the most respected and well established engineering communities worldwide. Founded 140 years ago, it is one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community. The IET has more than 150,000 members in 127 countries, with active networks of members in 37 countries.
