Facing new challenges togetherPublished 3/7, 2018 at 12:06
At the recent European Demolition Association’s annual convention in Vienna, Francisco Cobo of the Spanish demolition contractor Deltapunt, and the Spanish association AEDED, was elected the new President of the European Demolition Association. PDi Magazine would like to congratulate Francisco on his new position, and look forward to his columns which will be published in the magazine. Below you will find the first column from Francisco, who is also called Paco.
It is my wish to begin this column by sending my kind regards to all involved in the world of demolition; whatever their role or activity in our industry. Many I have already had the pleasure of meeting during my years of activity and attendance of EDA and NDA conventions, and the others, I hope to meet them in the future.
At the EDA 2018 convention recently held in Vienna, we had the opportunity to listen to interesting presentations, and meet again old friends as well as those joining us for the first time. We hope you will all join us in the future.
My intention as EDA president is, along with the secretariat, board of members and all those who participate in our trade, to face the challenges in the future and, if possible, to anticipate matters arising, and deal with them accordingly. Doing this will continue and build on the work undertaken by my predecessor in the office, and my dear friend, William Sinclair.
I would like to draw your attention to a ‘think tank’ that is being held in Brussels 10 October. The subject matter is demolition equipment, and is being organised in cooperation with the Committee for European Construction Equipment, CECE. Attendance is open and free, enabling all those who are interested to participate.
The EDA was founded in 1978 and is the leading platform for national demolition associations, demolition contractors and suppliers. The EDA has a strong focus on developments in Europe, which are of interest to the demolition industry.
