The European Plastics Converters (EuPC) trade group has recently created an independent association name Vinyl Films and Sheets Europe (VFSE) to represent the interest of European suppliers of plastics sheets, films and foils.
The organisation said on 15 March that the VFSE will tackle environment and recycling issues and carry out studies relating to the industry.
"The sector group aims to deepen collaboration of vinyl films and sheet manufactures in Europe," said Roberto Bozzi, Vulcaflex and VFSE president.
Additionally, the association will try to raise visibility of the “economic and practical value” of vinyl films and sheets, he added.
During its first meeting in November 2016, Roberto Bozzi, Vulcaflex was elected president and Michel Py, Cifra elected vice-president.
The association is open to all companies active in the vinyl films and sheets business in Europe and closely collaborates with Vinyl Plus, the sustainable development programme of the European PVC industry.
