    Global Aluminium Foil Roller Initiative (GLAFRI) has re-elected Göksal Güngör as President for a second term. Mr Güngor also serves as General Manager of Assan Alüminyum in Turkey and he had served as a Vice-President in GLAFRI before his election in 2018. The election and vote of confidence took place during 5th Global Aluminium Foil Roller Conference (GLAFCO) 23-25 January 2019 in Dubai, UAE.

    GLAFRI General Assembly also confirmed Olaf Müller of Hydro (Europe), Patrick Lawlor of Gränges (USA) and Simon Chan of Xiashun (China) in their positions as vice presidents and they will continue to serve on the GLAFRI Board.

    “I am delighted and honoured to be asked to continue to serve GLAFRI as its President and hope to continue with the many exciting projects we have initiated“, said Mr Güngör.

    He added that the expansion of the Alufoil Trophy competition from Europe into China and Latin America has been a notable achievement over recent years for the Global Aluminium Foil Roller Initiative. The Alufoil Trophy has been able to highlight and promote innovations in aluminium foil packaging and the overall sector in a global perspective. 

    “Altogether, 2018 was a good year for foil rollers and the outlook for 2019 remains favourable. We will continue to promote our ‘One Voice’ message to support global market growth and themed messages on sustainability and recovery,” Mr Güngör concluded.

    The conference hosted about 100 participants from all continents from the major players in the aluminium foil rolling industry and also from the end-user sector.  Delegates in the conference discussed challenges and opportunities facing global aluminium foil markets.  Key topics for discussions were foil market developments, sustainability and recycling.  Hyundai, Nespresso, Constantia, Huhtamaki and others expressed their views as end-use customers.

    The role of aluminium foil in future product design and trends in its use in high barrier flexible packaging was another topic for discussion. CRU presented a bullish global outlook for aluminium foil for the current and the next year.
