The Service Industry Association (SIA) was founded in 1985 as the leading trade association for companies involved in the repair of technology hardware, and in support of the development of our high tech service industry. The association was formed to provide business-to-business networking opportunities to promote partnerships between member companies, something it continues to do to this day.
Currently, the SIA houses over 140 members. The Service Industry Association hosts some of the worlds biggest organisations, many of which are involved in the TPM (Third Party Maintenance) and ISO (Independent Services Operator) markets. Each member shares the vision of the SIA which is that by 2022, the SIA will be the global community where Independent Service Provider executives come for insight, collaboration and networking, and it’s already well on its way.
