CEO of Germany based Advansa, Heinz Meierkord has been named the new president of CIRFS, a trade body representing Europe’s €10 billion man made fibres industry.

Heinz Meierkord succeeds Giulio Bonazzi, CEO of Aquafil, whose mandate has expired but who will remain a member of the Board as past-president.

CIRFS represents the man-made fibres industry within Europe and provides the sector with a wide range of services. Its members cover more than 80 per cent of European man-made fibres output.

Speaking about Heinz Meierkord, Bonazzi said, “He has actively contributed to CIRFS for many years, amongst others in its Board and more recently as its Vice-President.”

He added, “Heinz Meierkord has a long experience and a very successful record in the man-made fibres industry, leading a dynamic, innovative and successful company.

“He has on many occasions underlined the indispensable contribution of CIRFS to the industry’s development in Europe and how CIRFS can help the industry meet its current and future challenges.”

“Giulio Bonazzi has strongly supported CIRFS in his period as president, showing how the association can play a key role for industry by adapting to a constantly changing environment,” Heinz Meierkord said.

“I look forward to carrying on this mission over the next three years,” he added by saying.

The current situation of the man-made fibres industry, in Europe and also globally, is characterized by many uncertainties.

However, the European man-made fibre industry, the second largest in the world, has many strengths.

The European man-made fibres sector is innovative and sustainable and manufactures high quality and unique speciality products.

“CIRFS will continue to support and to help further develop the industry, building on its strengths,” Heinz Meierkord informed. (AR)
