About me

The AVK, as the German professional association for fibre reinforced plastics/composites, represents the interests of producers and processors of reinforced plastics/composites on a national and a European level. The AVK was founded in 1924 and currently has over 220 member companies (in Germany and abroad) and is therefore one of the largest associations in the European composites sector.

It represents members along the entire value-added chain in the area of reinforced plastics. Its members include manufacturers and suppliers of raw materials as well as processing companies, machine-tool manufacturers, engineering firms, testing authorities and scientific

institutions. The association represents both small and medium-sized companies as well as major multinational concerns.

The AVK is integrated into a strong network of German and European partners. For example, it is one of four sponsoring associations of the GKV - the umbrella organisation of the German plastics converters industry and represented in both the executive and board.

In addition, AVK is a foundation member of the German Composites Umbrella organization “Composites Germany”. Furthermore AVK is represented on the board of the European Composites Industry Association (EuCIA).
