According to JEC, the purpose of the 2007 Show will be to bring together and showcase the entire value chain, highlighting both the interdependence of all segments and the collective intelligence that goes into the cooperative effort between materials producers, processors, distributors, equipment manufacturers and their customers, the users.
“The JEC Composites Show is the international meeting place for innovation. It mobilises all segments of the composite industry in order to demonstrate to users the advantages of creating with composites. Processors are central to the business, as they represent 57% of the value added to the chain. They design, manufacture and give life to the products, always working closely with their customers. Together, suppliers and customers find the most effective solutions,” says JEC Group General Manager Frédérique Mutel.
