Kunststoffen 2018: a new stage for Frilvam on the path to growth in the European market


The twentieth edition of Kunststoffen is held at the Koningshof NH Conference Centre in Veldhoven, the Netherlands. Kunststoffen is the main fair and meeting place in Benelux for the entire manufacturing, plastics and rubber industry. There is the participation of about 300 companies and the number of international companies has increased considerably in recent editions, especially from Germany and Italy.
Frilvam will be represented in the Netherlands by a company official, together with the local agent, Bonnes Global Trading, a connoisseur of the market in Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg.


From 26 to 27 September, two days in which to realisethat there are an endless number of possibilities for working with plastic. The best way to get to the event from Italy is undoubtedly by plane. Lots of companies fly to Eindhoven and it is very easy to get to the Koningshof NH Conference Centre in Veldhovenfrom the airport. The distance is just five kilometres. You can take a bus (the number 20 or the number 319) and get there in about 40 minutes at a fairly low cost, the ticket being 2.60 Euros, with busses leaving every 20 minutes. Alternatively, the quickest solution is by taxi (just 15 minutes), but it is also more expensive at around 30 Euros.

” The Benelux market is an important territory for our core business and that is also one of the reasons Frilvam has decided to participate in the 2018 edition of the Kunststoffen fair. Indeed, it is no secret that our company has recently been developing its business in this part of Europe. As a result, making us better known locally has become a goal that we need to achieve as soon as possible: going to Holland is undoubtedly an important step in that direction
