Growth at European Coatings Show 2015

European Coatings Show 2015

We have just returned from the European Coatings Show (ECS) 2015 in Nuremburg, which was bigger than ever with over 1,000 exhibitors and nearly 28,500 visitors.  The fact that the show continues to grow in size matches what we see as a supplier to this key sector.  Changes in legislation, consumer trends, construction and economic activity all mean that this is a sector which is constantly innovating and growing in size to produce diverse modern coatings solutions.

We were delighted to meet with so many of our valued customers during the show to provide them with feedback on the current methacrylates market dynamics as well as hear about the latest developments in their own industries.  Whilst Q1 2015 was described as slower than normal by some compared to last year, others said that demand had been good and with the favourable climate conditions being seen, they hope for a strong coatings season ahead.

We are proud to be a key player in such an exciting industry which is constantly evolving.  The word ‘acrylic’ could be seen throughout the exhibition halls, demonstrating what a key part of the coatings offering it represents.

Sustainability continues to be a hot topic for manufacturers of coatings products and our latest edition of FreeFlow magazine provides an update on the progress we have made at our Cassel site, as well as the recent news on bio routes to MMA.
