ECIA holds its second Annual Meeting in Prague

The European Cellulose Insulation Association (ECIA) has held its second Annual General Meeting in the beautiful city of Prague.

The event was attended by a large cross section of European Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers, many members from the USA and Canadian cellulose insulation industry and also several associated members (equipment and raw material suppliers).

The aim of the meeting was to discuss a wide range of technical topics and also to discuss ideas as to how to further promote the excellent environmental and performance benefits of cellulose insulation. Part of the programme also involved a tour around the CIUR a.s., cellulose insulation production facility in Brandys Nad Labem, near Prague.

During the meeting there was a healthy exchange of ideas and experience between the EU and the North American delegates. It was also decided at the meeting to elect an additional board member, Mr Gerhard Huber. The meeting concluded with an extensive and detailed plan aimed at driving the market forward for cellulose.

Speaking from Prague, Mr Pasi Typpö, Chairman of the ECIA board stated at the end of the conference “I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the meeting and in particular the sharing of ideas between the EU and North American delegation. The conference has given our industry a great platform for moving the cellulose industry forward. Also, the appointment of a new additional director, Mr Huber, to the ECIA board demonstrates that our industry association is committed to expanding its activity in promoting our excellent range of cellulose fibre insulation products.”

Additionally, Mr Michal Urbanek, Managing Director CIUR a.s., who hosted this year’s event stated “I was very pleased to welcome the delegates to this year’s ECIA Annual Meeting in Prague and was also extremely satisfied with the outcome. It is very reassuring to know that our industry has a clear way forward and has a very high calibre of employees, management and associates.”
