FEFCO re-elects its President

On May 22, 2018, the FEFCO General Assembly re-elected Dr. Jan Klingele (Managing Partner, Klingele Papierwerke) as President and Jean-Paul Macharis (President, VPK Packaging) as Vice-President for a term of two years, and elected Saverio Mayer (CEO Europe, Smurfit Kappa) for a first term as Vice-President. Nina Iversen (Managing Director, Glomma Papp) was confirmed as honorary Vice-President.

"The corrugated industry is showing really good market growth, thanks to e-commerce and the robustness of the economy and international trade in Europe and worldwide," said Jan Klingele. "FEFCO achieved much during the last two years with the "Circular by Nature" communication campaign and the dissemination of the positive messages by the national corrugated associations creating a multiplying effect among the target audiences."

FEFCO (European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers) represents the interests of the European Corrugated Board Manufacturers. Headquartered in Brussels, FEFCO has 17 Association members, all European national corrugated packaging organisations. The role of the Federation is to investigate economic, financial, technical and marketing issues of interest to the corrugated packaging Industry, to analyse all factors which may influence the industry, and to promote and develop its image.

Europe's corrugated industry in Europe makes about 43.9 billion square metres of board per year, enough to cover Denmark. It has 401 companies, 672 plants and accounts for 90,000 jobs. Corrugated is already a complete, high-performance material design, and delivery system, with thousands of possible combinations of board types, depth, weight, adhesives, and coatings. The average box today is more than 5% lighter than 15 years ago and contains around 7% more recycled material.
