The European Plastics Converters association has created the independent VFSE association, to represent the interest of European suppliers of plastics sheets, films and foils.
VFSE members hope to drive common actions to tackle environmental and recycling issues, and carry out studies relating to the industry.
Roberto Bozzi, Vulcaflex and VFSE President, said: “The sector group aims to deepen collaboration of vinyl films and sheet manufacturers in Europe.
“Raising the visibility of the economic and practical value of vinyl films and sheets is a further purpose of our formation.”
During its first meeting in November 2016, Roberto Bozzi, Vulcaflex was elected President and Michel Py, Cifra elected Vice-President.
Additional Board members are José Texeira (TMG), Emanuel Legrand (Griffine), Joao Ronchel (Alkor Draka) and Marino Umberti (Alfatherm).
The Vinyl Films and Sheets Europe Association is open to all companies active in the vinyl films and sheets business in Europe. It closely collaborates with Vinyl Plus, the sustainable development programme of the European PVC industry.
