CAEF — The European Foundry Association
Umbrella organisation of the European foundry industry, established in 1953. CAEF deals with economic, technical, legal, and social issues. Its membership includes the national foundry associations from 22 European countries.
Data of unique scope and depth show the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on European foundries. While the European production of non-ferrous metals decreased by 19.2 % overall, the production of iron, nodular iron and steel castings decreased by 19.8 % compared to 2019.
Chiara Danieli, CEO of Groupe Bouhyer, was elected as president of CAEF for the upcoming year 2022 at the CAEF Council meeting in Bilbao. She will succeed Ignacio De la Peña, who is holding the position since 2020.
