France: ACDI reports significant cut-backs by plastics converters

The Association des Constructeurs, Distributeurs et Importateurs (ACDI, Gonesse / France; www.acdi-plasturgie.com), which represents French plastics machinery manufacturers, compounders and distributers, has reported a sharp drop in orders for injection moulding machinery, primary materials and compounds in 2009.

However, orders have begun to pick up since October 2009, according to association chairman Jean Michel Flamein, especially where machinery is concerned. Although he anticipates that the crisis will abate in 2010, business conditions will remain difficult, he says, with investment only gradually returning to normal.
