Polymers for Europe Alliance Launches Best Polymer Producers Awards
The Polymers for Europe Alliance has launched its online Europe-wide customers’ satisfaction survey to award the best polymer producers for Europe. All users of polymers in Europe can get access to the voting tool free of charge and in strict confidence and can rate their suppliers’ performances in 2015 up to May 2016.
“We decided to start the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe in order to re-establish a good communication between users of polymers and their suppliers, which has obviously suffered lately. We simply want to award those producers who support their European customer base,” outlines Ron Marsh, chairman of the Polymers for Europe Alliance. “Therefore, we chose what we believe are the five most important criteria for users of polymers when it comes to their suppliers: Polymer quality, Regulatory Compliance, Material Delivery Performance, Communication and Innovation”.
Based on the ratings for these five criteria, the best European polymer suppliers in the eight different polymer type categories LDPE, HDPE, PC, PET, PP, PS, PVC and U-PR will be announced. Furthermore, a 9th overarching award on Innovation, covering all polymer types, will be made.
“The online rating tool is easy to understand, extremely user-friendly and provided in several languages in order to reach out to as many polymer users in Europe as possible. It allows users to select and rate their three best suppliers from a global list of polymer producers,” explains Ron Marsh further. Companies first have to register with the Alliance in order to get access to the rating tool. This registration ensures that only eligible European companies are using the rating tool.
The rating period is open for three months from mid-February to mid-May 2016. The final awards ceremony will take place during the European Plastics Converters (EuPC) Annual Meeting on 2-3 June 2016 in Lyon, France.
