FEICA (Fédération Européenne des Industries de Colles et Adhésifs), the Association of European Adhesive and Sealant Industry and its national trade associations, represent and defend the interests of this very innovative industry. FEICA was founded in Rome in 1972, with a Belgian President and a secretariat provided by the German adhesive association with offices in Düsseldorf. From the beginning, FEICA has sought to represent manufacturers across all of Europe. The Association has continued to evolve, thanks to the contribution of its national associations, direct company members and affiliate company members. Located in Brussels since January 2007, FEICA seeks to develop communication with stakeholders, strengthen the network between its members, reinforce its role as an authoritative and trusted voice for the industry within the European Community, and promote the welfare of its members within the framework of European law, by informing them about legislative developments affecting the industry.
