CECED Basics

domestic appliances, in Europe, each day, at least 300 million hours are set free from domestic hard work routine. The availability of domestic appliances in the households has allowed to increase the quality of life.

The European industry is a basic asset of the EU economy. The industry has improved technology dramatically over the years and this has been accompanied by ever-lower prices to consumers. 50million large appliances and 200 million small appliances are sold in average in Europe, every year.

About half a million employees develop and produce world-wide state of the art technology, which may constitute a reference for the development of welfare in the new industrialised countries, provided that the European technology remains affordable to them.

In 1958, CECED was founded on the initiative of the Western-European National Associations. Since 1997 it has established a permanent office in Brussels to better represent the industry vis-à-vis the European institutions. Direct membership for individual companies was also introduced in that year. In 1999 CECED has streamlined its organisation and has set up its current structure.

Today, CECED counts 15 Direct Members and 24 National Associations representing 22 countries.

CECED promotes the industry’s mission to increase the performance while reducing the environmental impact of the appliances.
