European ceramics industry suppliers meet in Amsterdam
Last 14 November the members of the European Ceramic Technology Suppliers association (ECTS) held one of its biannual meetings in Amsterdam.
You may remember that the objectives of the ECTS, of which BERALMAR is a member, are the defence of common interests, dissemination of market information and the promotion of improved mutual understanding and cooperation between the members.
In this latest meeting the economic situation in the sector and participation in fairs were discussed. The following presentations were also given: one of a technical nature on the manufacture of manual parts from clay and fly ash given by Hans van Wijck of the TCKI technology centre (Holland) and another on European funding for research and development given by Dr. Frank Knecht.
We take this opportunity to offer our thanks to our colleagues from Machinefabrik De Boer B.V. and Stafier Holland B.V. for their impeccable organisational work. The next ECTS meeting will take place in spring 2009 in Italy.
