Luigi Giamundo became the new President of The European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA) at the association’s AGM in Amsterdam.
Mr. Giamundo is owner of the ATP pultrusion company in Italy and this is his second term - his first term on the Board was from November 1992 until June 1996. He has indicated that he has a little more time today, since he passed most of the daily management of ATP to the younger Giamundo generation.
Meanwhile, the past Chairman, M. Eric Moussiaux was proposed by the EPTA Board to become a member of the European Composite Industry Association (EuCIA) Presidium. M. Moussiaux has accepted this post and will be installed shortly to represent the interest of the Pultrusion Industry on behalf of EPTA, which is the first pan-European interest group represented within EuCIA.
The involvement of EPTA within EuCIA is a result of the closer cooperation over the last year between both organisations, one achievement of which has been the recently announced Composites Europe exhibition. Both organisations expect to strengthen their positions in the future through this new event by playing a more prominent role in putting composite materials as a qualified alternative on the ""European Materials Map"".
