The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced that it will close its UK-based head office on April 30, 2020, and will establish a new secretariat team located in Chantilly, France. 

The EPMA was founded in Brussels in 1989, and has had its secretariat based in Shrewsbury, UK, since 1990. A second office, originally established as a base for the EPMA’s technical team, was opened in Chantilly, France, in 2018.

According to the EPMA, the decision has been made in order to improve overall efficiency, as well as enabling a better platform for cost optimisation. As of May 1, the French office will become the main administrative base and home to a new secretariat team. The EPMA’s registered headquarters will remain in Brussels. 

To ensure a level of continuity in the run-up to the EPMA’s Euro PM2020 Congress & Exhibition, a number of key UK-based staff members will reportedly work from home, with employment extended until the event.  

A new secretariat is currently being formed, and the EPMA states that further information will be published in due course.
