Chester, UK, May 8th, 2014: Leading British plastics event Interplas is proud to announce its partnership with supporting organisation PMMDA.
PMMDA's involvement in what is fast becoming the 'must attend' plastics show of 2014 reaffirms why Interplas is the unmissable event of the year and why it is relevant to the entire industry. Organisers Rapid News Communications Group welcomes PMMDA's endorsement, flying the flag for British plastics at the triennial event, which this year features an outstanding line-up of top flight speakers and a buzzing show floor of more than 400 exhibitors from September 30th-October 2nd at the NEC in Birmingham.
Originally formed in 1996 from eight founder companies in polymer machinery manufacturing and distribution, PMMDA's mission is to set the standards of UK manufacturers and distributors of foreign machinery.
The group has grown to more than 30 members in polymers, plastics and related technologies and continues to provide a mark of superior quality, with members fulfilling criteria proving their authority in the marketplace and working together to develop EU and ISO standards for the entire sector. It is this indicator of excellence that makes PMMDA's endorsement of Interplas so significant.
Nigel Flowers, PMMDA Chairman, commented: "PMMDA is the Trade Association for machinery manufacturers and distributors within the Polymer Industry in the UK. Member companies carry the stamp of approval for sales, service and spares, and are pleased to be supporting Interplas 2014. Our members are confident that over the last 50 years Interplas has fully established itself in the UK, offering plastics industry professionals the opportunity to view and compare the widest range of machinery in action, covering every aspect of plastics manufacturing equipment."
Duncan Wood, COO and Event Director, Rapid News Communications, added: "We are delighted once again to have the support of the PMMDA and its members for Interplas this year. To date we have 26 member companies confirmed on the expanded 2014 floorplan and we hope to add additional members in due course. The PMMDA's support for the event is indicative of the strength of a resurgent Interplas and reaffirms the event as the leading event for the UK plastics industry. We look forward to a fruitful partnership in the run up to September and beyond."
Interplas 2014 takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, UK, on September 30th-October 2nd 2014. Visitors can register for free at www.interplasuk.com/register.html.
Interplas is the UK’s largest plastics industry exhibition and the only event to cover all of the manufacturing processes, technologies and services within the plastics industry.
Under the new management of Rapid News Communications Group, the 2011 event was hailed as a resounding success by exhibitors and visitors alike placing the show firmly back on the map as a must attend event for the British plastics industry. The anticipation of a further revitalised Interplas in 2014 is clearly evident with over 400 exhibiting companies set to display to over 12,000 attendees.
Having formed almost 50 years ago, PMMDA remains a well-respected Trade Association within the UK Plastics Industry. As a group of machinery suppliers, PMMDA members must be able to demonstrate that their equipment is well established in the UK market or in its country of origin before acceptance into the Association. With over 30 member companies, PMMDA therefore represents a substantial industrial force within the plastics machinery market.
As well as maintaining its main pillars of quality and service, the Association also acts as an information source for members and their customers, with regular newsletters keeping its readers up to date on information relevant to the industry.
