„In the past two years, we were able to significantly expand the international network of the OE-A along the entire value chain. The fact that the share of end-users among our
members has grown disproportionately indicates that this young industry is now transitioning to mass production," says Dr. Stephan Kirchmeyer, who has been leading
the OE-A as Chairman since 2011. He was reelected to the position for an additional two years. „The new board reflects the international, global reach and membership
structure of the OE-A." Additional information on the OE-A and its members can be found in the new, fifth edition of the OE-A brochure; a limited number of OE-A brochures include an interactive cover page with integrated organic and printed electronics.
