Established in 2011, the Highway Electrical Association (HEA) is a trade association with a history expanding over 65 years. The HEA was formed by the amalgamation of ASLEC (The Association of Signal, Lighting and other highway electrical contractors) and HEMSA (The Highway Electrical Manufacturers and Suppliers Association). The HEA is one of the largest and most influential bodies within the sector, representing over 100 organisations whose contract services range from street lighting and traffic signals to highway communications. In addition, the HEA represents HEA-HEMSA members who design, manufacture, assemble, supply and distribute equipment into the highway electrical sector.

The HEA’s main objectives are:

  • To be a professional member organisation relevant to the highway electrical sector.
  • To provide services that meet the needs of members and other stakeholders.
  • To facilitate and lead the development of qualifications and training.
