CAEF - Milko Milanov new president

CAEF, the umbrella organization of European foundry associations, has a new president since the beginning of the year – the Bulgarian entrepreneur Milko Milanov.

Graduate engineer Milko Milanov spends his whole life in the foundry industry, having started as a mould maker and later becoming manager in the largest foundries in Bulgaria. Today, he runs a jobbing foundry as well as a training and consulting centre for the Bulgarian metal foundry sector. He succeeds Chiara Daneli by rotation, who will continue to represent the French foundries on the CAEF Council.

While in 2022 the crisis management of the European foundry industry was once again put to the test, in 2023 it is still a matter of finding strategic answers for the long-term perspective of Europe as a business location and the role of the foundry industry. For the European foundry industry, the question of energy availability at competitive prices is top of a long list.
