If you’re in the engine building business, there’s no tool
more important than an AERA membership
The AERA Engine Builders Association is the preeminent technical resource and industry voice for internal combustion engine builders, remanufacturers, machine shops, OEMs, suppliers and service providers worldwide. Established in 1922, AERA is the industry’s oldest and most authoritative organization, serving an international membership made up of thousands of small and large businesses serving industries ranging from mining and manufacturing to Formula 1 racing.
As an industry representative, AERA acts as an influential voice, promoting the common interests of its members by educating and informing the public, and advocating sensible government policies that support an industry that is a critical component of local, nation and global economies.
As a technical organization, AERA provides engine specifications and technical assistance for internal combustion engines manufactured worldwide. Its world-class staff of experts and vast technical libraries provide AERA members with unparalleled access to information, expertise and assistance regarding engines and internal components of every conceivable size and use.
Members have toll-free access to three ASE-certified Master Machinists who help find answers to tough technical questions. Dave Hagen has over 42 years of experience in our industry, specializing in cylinder head work and complete engine assembly for the first 17 years of his career; Steve Fox has over 20 years experience in the engine building industry and is also a longtime member of the drag racing circuit; and Mike Caruso brings over 50 years of rebuilding and high performance experience to AERA.
AERA has developed PRO-SIS SA Engine Specification Software to help engine builders find engine specifications with a click of the mouse. The program offers nearly 7,000 engine specifications from 120 manufacturers covering light-duty, agricultural, industrial and import engines. It features over 34,000 casting numbers and remanufacturing specifications for cylinder blocks, heads, crankshafts, camshafts and connecting rods.
Members also receive Engine Professional magazine on a quarterly basis. This publication is packed with highly technical, application-driven articles that will help engine builders and their businesses thrive.
AERA also sponsors “Tech & Skills Regional Conferences” in order to provide technical presentations and unique shop skills instruction to all who attend. Everyone in business owes it to themselves and their business to gain knowledge and network with people within the same industry. AERA understands that traveling to national trade shows to gain knowledge and networking opportunities can be expensive, so by teaming up with a regional host, AERA can offer these opportunities throughout the country and hopefully closer to member shops.
