About the Material Suppliers Sub-Group

The Material Suppliers Sub-Group was formed so that both suppliers and users of resins and fibre have a forum where they can exchange ideas on the future trends of raw materials and be made aware of current and future UK and European legislation, with which the industry will have to comply to remain legal.
