During the past three months, users of polymers across Europe participated in an online survey to rate their supplier’s performance from June 2018 up to May 2019. The evaluation considered the categories Polymer Quality, Regulatory Compliance, Delivery Reliability, Communication and Innovation for a total of 9 different materials. For the first time, the Alliance published as well a more detailed ranking, including the scores of all polymer suppliers that we rated by the members of the Alliance. The complete ranking is available here.

The opening date for the next voting round of the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe 2020 will be announced in September 2019.
