Polymers for Europe Alliance

 

What is the Polymers for Europe Alliance?

 

The Alliance was initiated by the European Plastics Converters association (EuPC) during its General Assembly in May 2015. It is an online, confidential information platform open to all parties who have an interest in the competitive conversion of polymers in Europe. Its objectives are to provide factual public information on the status of the polymer supply situation in Europe and to re-establish a constructive dialogue with the supply base.

  • Annual Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe:


    In February 2016, the Alliance launched for the first time the voting for the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe, an online Europe-wide customers’ satisfaction survey for all polymer users in Europe. All users of polymers in Europe - provided that they have subscribed to the Alliance - were eligible to access the voting tool free of charge and in strict confidence. They could rate their suppliers’ performances from 2015 up to May 2016 regarding the five specific criteria Quality, Regulatory Compliance, Delivery performance, Communication and Innovation.

    Within three months we received nearly 250 ratings from polymer users all over Europe. Based on their votings the seven winners of the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe 2016 were announced and awarded during the European Plastics Converters (EuPC) Annual Meeting on 3 June 2016 in Lyon.

    The opening date for the next voting round of the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe 2017 will be February 2017.
