Pooling Resources

The Kunststoff-Netzwerk Franken e. V. (furthermore mentioned as KNF) sees itself as a place of exchange for companies allocated in the plastics industries branch. Our goal is to bring experts together and provide the opportunity for mutual exchange at the events of work groups and professional events. Participants use these gatherings to establish their personal professional network in the industry.

Cross-company communication and business related exchange is the key for the companies and their employees to establish a wide overview over the developments in the plastics industry. All events hosted by KNF aim to boost / strengthen its members’ performances and therefore improve their competitive advantage.

The network itself offers a variety of opportunities to increase the benefit for your company. We like to compare our idea of the network to a gym membership. No benefit or improvements can be achieved by merely paying the membership fee. Noticeable changes and effects can only be recognized, when offers provided by the KNF are used regularly and therefore the companies and their employees contribute themselves to the success.

As a member in our network you decide yourselves to what extent you will profit from the mutual exchange.
