On Wednesday, 7 June 2017, the member assembly of the Italian trade association of manufacturers of plastics and rubber processing machinery and moulds approved the proposal to change the name of the association from Assocomaplast to AMAPLAST. 

An even shorter acronym was also introduced: AMP, featuring the colours of the Italian flag to symbolize the national identity. 

In a period when plastics are constantly in the spotlight and often criticized, this new name sends a positive signal and strengthens the idea of an organization and a group of companies that are committed to developing and promoting cutting-edge technologies to produce quality products, with great concern for issues of eco-sustainability, the reduction in resource use, and energy savings. 

Today, the association (member of Confindustria) continues to represent over 160 major Italian machinery manufacturers. 

The e-mail addresses of the staff change to the domain @amaplast.org. The other contacts and data will not change.
