European SMC/BMC group now under EuCIA umbrella

The European Alliance for SMC/BMC is now a part of the new European Composite Industry Association (EuCIA).

The European Alliance for SMC/BMC (sheet and bulk molding compound), an industrial association of European companies and institutions involved in the field and product chain of SMC/BMC, is now aligned with the European Composites Industry Association (EuCIA).

According to Alliance chairman Peter Schmidt (Polynt GmbH), the Alliance intends to strengthen its position as an European Group. Furthermore the aim is to contribute to a restructuring and harmonization of the associations landscape within the European composites industry.

For several years the Alliance has acted successfully as a Working Group of AVK, the German Federation of Reinforced Plastics, which is located in Frankfurt. It is planned that the Alliance will be organized as a sector group directly under the umbrella of EuCIA, of which AVK is a member, as well. EuCIA will then take over the administrative tasks for the Alliance.
