The Association


As an association, we primarily want to make the advantages of flock technology better known, further develop the flocking process and make its application even safer and more environmentally compatible. This is intended not only to improve existing applications but also to steadily add new ones, thus enlarging the market for all member companies.
In addition, our association is actively involved in the development of safety regulations as well as quality standards.

The association ensures an intensive transfer of information between member companies, science and politics. Our multilingual Internet presence has developed into a globally important information carrier and communication platform for interested parties and users.

We see ourselves as representing the interests of all companies involved in flocking who have decided to become members.

Together with our members, a unique know-how of experienced specialistsis is at your disposal.
Our members come from all major flocking backgrounds:

Manufacturer of:

  • Flocking equipment and machines
  • Flock cables (tow), i.e. raw material for fibre production
  • Flock adhesives
  • Flock fibres
  • Carrier materials
  • Pre- and post-treatment methods


  • Trade and representation companies
  • Engineering offices and consultants
  • Scientists and institutes

Users and processing companies of flocked materials are also addressed.
The bodies of the Flock Association of Europe (FaoE) are the General Assembly and the Board. All full members have equal rights to a seat and vote.

The Board members represent the cross-section of the entire industry. Balanced representation and consideration of the interests of all members is guaranteed.

The membership of the Board and working groups is on a voluntary basis.

Furthermore, the Flock Association of Europe maintains an office, which will be happy to assist you at any time, and the FaoE is represened in Brussels through its membership of the European Small Business Alliance (ESBA).

This form of organisation ensures a mutual exchange of experience. The advantage is the early recognition of tasks and their effective processing.

Technical issues are discussed in the working groups.
