On June 3rd 2016, the European Plastics Converters (EuPC) association unanimously re-elected Michael Kundel as its president. Mr. Kundel, CEO of Renolit, is renewing his two-year term as EuPC President.
The elections took place during EuPC’s General Assembly, held during the EuPC Annual Meeting on 2 and 3 June 2016 in Lyon, France. The two-day conference, organized by Polymer Comply Europe, gathered over 120 senior management delegates from the entire plastics value chain.
