Paolo Pozzi, CEO of Agrati, who has been elected president of the European Industrial Fasteners Institute.

A success not only for him but also for the entire Italian fastener sector (UPIVEB), which, for the first time, sees its own representative at the top of the European Association.

He will certainly have the opportunity to address a wide range of topics and challenges facing European manufacturer.

“I am very happy and honored to be appointed EIFI President at a time of major changes inside and outside the organization.
We are living in a period of great transformations which increasingly require sharing of activities at a European level and #EIFI is the best tool to represent and defend the fasteners industry and its specificities.

Despite all the difficulties of the recent past, in 2022 Europe remains the first market for fasteners globally with a share of more than 26% and I believe this is sufficient to make it clear how important it is to have a dynamic and visible association .

After more than 15 years at the helm of the EIFI Automotive Group, it is a new starting point for me and I will put all the necessary effort into growing our association with the aim of creating value for all members large and small .

I thank all the people who have supported me in this new challenge and I hope I can repay the trust shown in this opportunity.”
