50 million m²/yr as the mid-term market potential for laminate and multi-layer floorings in Iran - this is the number projected by the management of the Association of European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF) and of the Multilayer Modular Flooring Association (MMFA). Since the end of the sanctions, both associations have been making an effort to open and enhance the market access for their members. In the course of talks with governmental departments and corresponding associations, association director Peter H. Meyer together with Amir Hossein Shiravi, director general of the Iranian Ministry for Industry, Mines and Trade, were spontaneously asked to open the Woodex 2017 (International Exhibition of Accessories & Furniture Machinery, Equipment & Related Industries) in Teheran.
