CAEF, the European Association of Foundries, had called to Paris to discuss and analyze the current situation in the foundry industry.
After the pandemic, in the midst of supply shortages, war in Ukraine and the desolate energy situation in Europe and exploding prices dominated the discussions of the nearly 100 participants from foundry companies all over Europe.
It quickly became clear that the entrepreneurs expect pragmatic signs from their national governments and from the European Union to cap energy prices. The CAEF as an association, as well as the national foundry associations were called upon to act to guarantee the existence of the companies and their competitiveness.
After the official part of the meeting, the members of the CAEF board met again and we will keep you informed about the results.
