New Edition of “STARKE SEITEN” is available now

The brand-new issue of this printed magazine is available now. More than 25,000 recipients from the PVC industry and professionals who decide on the use of PVC products in Germany, Austria and Switzerland got their personal copy in these days. In addition, AGPU member companies who attend the Fensterbau Frontale Trade Fair next week can hand the high-quality magazine out to interested clients and visitors.

16 years ago, the first issue of the magazine “STARKE SEITEN” was published with the concept that still holds today: to tell stories about people and PVC. The communications experts of AGPU recognized that the reputation of PVC could not just be improved through scientific facts and technical progress like new additives and an increase in recycling. They initiated an emotional communication about the benefits of the PVC material and products. Since then, the magazine has never run out of interesting topics about PVC products and the people behind. The stories are not only from Europe, but also from Japan, Australia and the USA.

GKV: Plastics Processing Companies Achieve Record Sales

The German Plastics Processing Industry Association (GKV) is looking forward to 2014 with true confidence after the industry yet again achieved record sales in 2013. According to a recent press release, industry sales of 55.9 billion Euro in 2012 increased to 57.6 billion Euro in 2013, which represents a growth of 3 percent. This figure clearly shows that the plastics processing industry still plays an important role as a driving force behind economic development. Nevertheless, according to Dr Bernd-O. Kruse, the President of the GKV, the demands of the German Renewable Energy Law (EEG) are increasingly becoming a cause for concern for companies in the industry.
