As President of the European Federation of DIY Manufacturers (fediyma), I would like to introduce you to the activities of our organisation which bring huge benefits every year to our members. The formation of fediyma reflects the growing international status of this region and provides its member companies with the competitive advantage that comes from being part of both a national association and a European federation.
The European Federation of DIY Manufacturers (fediyma) was created in March 2000 by its founding members BHETA (United Kingdom), Herstellerverband Haus & Garten (Germany) and Unibal (France). FEBIN (Belgium), MADE4DIY (Italy), AFEB (Spain) and IVG (Germany) have also joined our federation in recent years. All together they represent 78% of the European home improvement market with over 850 member companies.
Fediyma will focus on engaging our membership, offering activities and initiatives that are strategic in nature and focused in future challenges across Europe. We will continue to expand our member services, offer a wide range of DIY market data studies, increase the quality of our networking events as we have done with the Global DIY Summit, represent the interests of our industry at a EU level, among other projects that will increase our visibility in the home improvement sector. As a result of these initiatives, we expect a considerable expansion of our Federation across Europe in the coming years.
