Vinyl Films and Sheets Europe is a newly formed European wide association that is regrouping three former EuPC groups dealing with plastic (PVC) films.
In 2016, discussions to merge existing EATS (European Automotive Trim Suppliers), EDEFA (European Decorative Foils Association) and EPFMA (European PVC Films Manufacturers Association) began. VFSE now represents all three associations within the EuPC structure.
A strong link with Vinyl Plus and Recovinyl on all PVC film recycling and communications activities is established, the three VFSE working groups Packaging, Automotive and Decoration build on former activities and work towards meeting the voluntary commitment targets set by industry towards 2020.
With this new set up, the Vinyl Films and Sheet business in Europe has a strong platform and representation towards stakeholders to maintain a sustainable future for the PVC films sector.
Polymer Comply Europe (PCE) runs the association's administration and secures all VFSE members comply with EU Regulations such as REACH or FOOD Contact.
Michel was unanimously voted President of VFSE in November 2022. He represents CIFRA, the French leader in the calendering of PVC film for rainwater storage, automotive, packaging, and printing stationery.
