The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) will celebrate 20-years of service to its Member Organisations, Companies and Individual Members in 2009. Originally formed in 1989, the EPMA’s main purpose and mission remains the promotion of using the Powder Metallurgy manufacturing process over other competing manufacturing processes. Since its conception, the EPMA has worked to promote the interests of EPMA Members and the entire European Powder Metal Industry to an international audience. Now in its 20th year the EPMA plans to celebrate this milestone with a special EPMA Newsletter, a retrospective view of the last 20 years of the EPMA. As part of the year-long celebration a special Anniversary Dinner is planned to coincide with the EPMA’s Annual Meeting, April 2009. A 20th birthday party is also planned to take place at the Euro PM2009 Congress & Exhibition to thank its members for their support during the period. As a starting point for the 20th Anniversary celebrations a special EPMA logo has been created to help promote this special occasion and will be available in January 2009. Details on the further anniversary activities will be posted on the EPMA website, www.epma.com in the near future or via Email News/EPMA Newsletter.
