FEPA Congress 2016 in Budapest

New presidency at FEPA

FEPA Congress 2016 in Budapest
From the 15th to 17th of June 2016, over a hundred representatives of abrasives and superabrasives manufacturers and grains producers gathered together in Budapest (Hungary). Every year the congress of the Federation of the European Producers of Abrasives (FEPA) is the major event of an industry defining itself as solutions provider to most industries in Europe and worldwide. The experts of companies met specialists in health, safety and environment, research, and standardisation. Together they evaluate technical issues, new regulations, HSE issues about products, manufacturing and users’ safety. 

In 2016 “raising awareness of users on safety” was the main focus in Budapest. It has been also the main objective of the mandate of the former President, Mr Alessandro Gallo (Siapi Abrasivi – Italy), and resulted in the publication of the Abrasives Safety website and free video- tutorials on YouTube in 2015. A movie summarising FEPA’s activities has been published online (click here to watch it).

The new President of FEPA is Mr. Jean-Philippe Guyot - Director of SEA Abrasifs (France). He has been elected for 2 years by the General Assembly, with Dr. Ing. Jan Cord Becker -CEO of Hermes Schleifmittel and Hermes Schleifkörper (Germany) - as Vice-President. The new presidency will keep on developing FEPA’s services to the industry, safety information and training for professional users and DIYers across Europe. The publication of the Abrasives Safety website and videos in German and Italian has already been announced before the end of 2016. Training projects are also in plans for 2017 and 2018.
