Frédéric Van Houte – whose nomination as Director General of CIRFS (Comité International de la Rayonne et des Fibres Synthétiques) : European Man-made Fibres Association and EATP (European Polyolefin Textiles Association) was announced earlier this year – has now joined the organisation with effect from December 1, 2010. He acts as joint Director General with Colin Purvis during December, and will take over sole responsibility as from the retirement of Colin Purvis on December 31, 2010.

Colin Purvis comments:
“My period as Director General of CIRFS and EATP has been one of great change for the fibres and textile industries. It has been exciting to help guide CIRFS and EATP through such interesting times, and to represent the man-made fibres and polyolefin textiles industries to the European authorities.

“European producers are highly competitive, with an outstanding record of quality, innovation, global marketing and environmental sustainability. However, they are strongly influenced by actions taken by governments, in both Europe and the world at large, and therefore need a strong voice to represent them. I am confident that, under the leadership of Frédéric Van Houte, CIRFS and EATP will continue to play a very effective representational role, as well as providing other valuable services to member companies.

“I have benefited greatly during my time at CIRFS and EATP from strong support from successive Presidents and from the member companies. The support of the experienced and able staff in the CIRFS and EATP secretariat has also been essential, and without this the high reputation of both bodies could not have been achieved.

“I wish Frédéric Van Houte, all my CIRFS and EATP colleagues and the whole man-made fibres and polyolefin textile industries great success in the future.”

CIRFS: European Man-made Fibres Association is the representative body for Europe's €13 billion man-made fibres industry, representing the industry to the European authorities and providing the industry with a wide range of services. Its members cover 85% of European man-made fibres output.
