“I am honoured to have been elected Chairman for the fourth successive time by the four associations CCeV, CfK Valley, VDMA and AVK. It is expected that 2017 will be a record year with approx. 7 % growth. In Europe, our industry will generate more than € 32 billion in sales from a volume of nearly 3 million tonnes of composites. These figures confirm the important role played by the composites industry not just as a key technology but also as a powerful growth market for Germany and Europe. It is vital that we and our more than 820 member companies work together with research institutes to advance our industrial R&D projects and continuously improve competitiveness.”
