from Food Production Daily
There has been a "remarkable" jump in demand for German plastic manufacturing equipment this year, with the pace of recovery outstripping expectations from the sector, said a leading trade association. The VMDA, the body representing the German machinery and industrial equipment makers, said orders for the plastics and rubber industries had doubled between September 2009 and June 2010. In the first half of the year, orders from customers within Germany were up by 26 percent, while demand from abroad climbed by 117 percent. Orders from the Euro area showed an increase of 51 percent, said the association.
