PFPNet, the industry organisation that has been formed by MMI Engineering (MMI) to address the main issues surrounding the PFP industry, kicked off this month (June) with a total of 23 members.
Current Member companies are as follows:
- Isolatek International
- Morgan Advanced Materials
- Advanced Insulation
- Typhoon Performance Products
- Alfred Miller Contracting
- Benarx Solutions
- MMI Engineering
- PFP Specialists
Initially, the group sought to recruit 30 member companies – however, to maintain momentum, a narrower initial scope of work is to be focussed on. The first year will therefore comprise of the most pressing issues identified at PFPNet’s launch meetings held in Manchester, UK and Texas, Houston:
- Seeking new members
- Creating the website with Members portal
- Developing a document that will define the roadmap for how to develop a PFP scheme
- Establishing the process of engaging with standards bodies
- Beginning the process for developing an accredited scheme
- Hosting an annual conference
Building the roadmap, engaging standards bodies and creating an accredited scheme will all be managed via sub-committees. Member companies are currently putting individuals forward for these, including nominations for committee chairs. Sub-committee meetings will commence mid-July.
As more members join PFPNet over the next year, the group intends to commence the further work tasks that were identified in the original proposal. Since announcing the formation of sub-committees to those that have previously expressed an interest in PFPNet, enquiries have increased, and it is anticipated that more companies will join in the coming months.
