2019 is a momentous year for the European Powder Metallurgy Association as it celebrates its 30 Anniversary. It was founded in 1989 with a handful of Members, some of which are still EPMA Members today, to promote, develop and represent the Powder Metallurgy (PM) industry throughout Europe. Although the past 30 years has seen many changes in the powder metal sector, PM technology is still leading the way in several end user sectors and applications and the EPMA and its Members will ensure it will be around for another 30 years!
A 30th Anniversary celebration of the European Powder Metallurgy (EPMA) took place during the Euro PM2019 Congress & Exhibition event, allowing attendees to recollect past colleagues, companies and milestones in the powder metallurgy industry over the last three decades.
A special panel session called 'EPMA and PM Technologies - Past, Present & Future', took place, which represented all the different PM sectors, facilitated by Lionel Aboussouan, EPMA's Chief Executive Officer.
The annual Euro PM event concluded on Wednesday evening, with a special 30th Anniversary Closing Drinks Reception at the MECC.
