The New Jersey Business & Industry Association provides information, services and advocacy to its member companies in order to build a more prosperous New Jersey. NJBIA is the nation's largest statewide employer association. Its members, as a group, employ more than one million people.

NJBIA was founded in 1910 by a group of manufacturers who wanted to share ideas about workplace safety and who wanted to have a say in government policies affecting their business. Today, the Association’s 20,000 plus members represent every industry in the State, including contractors, manufacturers, retail and wholesale businesses, and service providers of every kind.

In February 2010, the Association reached its centennial milestone, marking a century of service to New Jersey business. Read centennial history.

NJBIA today is widely regarded as the most credible and effective advocate for business in the State. As such, we are truly the voice of business in New Jersey. Our headquarters at 10 West Lafayette Street in Trenton is strategically located near the State Capitol. Our staff of government affairs experts testifies frequently before the Legislature and State agencies and is vigilant in its efforts to protect the interests of our members. 

NJBIA also provides its member companies with practical information and money-saving benefits to help their businesses. We provide a variety of other services to our member companies and act as a valuable information resource. See benefits of membership.

Any private-sector business or employer located in New Jersey may join NJBIA.
