AGPU becomes VinylPlus Germany

With its new name, the German PVC industry is setting an example for its joint European commitment to sustainability.

With immediate effect, the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft PVC und Umwelt e.V." (AGPU) has a new name: "VinylPlus Deutschland e.V.". With this, the German PVC industry wanted to send a clear signal for the joint European commitment to sustainability, reports the association, which in Germany alone comprises a network of currently more than 50 member companies and partners.  
In order to express the clear focus on the topics of sustainable, climate-friendly production and consumer protection even more strongly and to bundle the joint activities in Germany and Europe under one sender, the member companies had already decided on the renaming in the summer of last year, explains Dr. Oliver Mieden, Chairman of VinylPlus Germany.
As the voice of the PVC industry in Germany, the association represents the entire value chain, pools the knowledge of many experts, promotes its exchange and is in dialogue with decision-makers and opinion leaders, creates transparency and builds trust in the sustainable development of the industry and the material, says Managing Director Thomas Hülsmann (photo), outlining the association's field of activity and emphasising: "The previous extensive range of services for our members will remain unchanged".
