On 18 October 2012, the leadership positions of the European umbrella association for plastics and rubber machinery manufacturers (EUROMAP) have been newly appointed and ARBURG Managing Director Helmut Heinson has been elected as Vice President.

New leadership elected
The elections took place in the context of the Extraordinary General Assembly of EUROMAP held at the Fakuma exhibition in Friedrichshafen. In future, Helmut Heinson will represent the new President, Tria Shareholder and CEO Luciano Anceschi, who will take over Bernhard Merki’s office, who held the Presidency since 2005 as Managing Director of Netstal.

Focus on energy saving
“Being elected as Vice President of EUROMAP is great honour for me,” said Helmut Heinson, who has been Managing Director Sales at ARBURG since 2005. At the EUROMAP umbrella association, he has to date been involved for example in market data and trade-fair related activities. “A very important practical topic for EUROMAP was, is and will continue to be energy savings,” adds Helmut Heinson regarding the focus of his activities. The umbrella association is highly committed and well equipped to drive forward developments with regard to lowering the energy requirements of plastics and rubber machines. Currently, recommendations regarding the standardisation of energy measurement, for example in the fields of injection moulding, extrusion, blow-moulding and thermoforming are being drawn up.
