The Irish Engineering Enterprises Federation (IEEF) promotes and supports the competitiveness and prosperity of the engineering sector in Ireland. The Federation achieves this through the representation of the sector's interests to national government and EU institutions, the provision of business and market information to companies, and development of specific programmes on key business issues.

The engineering sector has an aggregate turnover of over €14.2 billion, equating to 9.5% of manufacturing turnover in Ireland. Engineering companies in Ireland employ approximately 53,000 or 22.4% of manufacturing employment.
