The European Carton Makers Association brings together folding carton converters, cartonboard mills, national associations and suppliers to the folding carton industry. ECMA represents over 500 carton producers with a current workforce of 60,000+ located across nearly all countries in the European Economic Area – this equates to over 80% of the €12.2 bill European folding carton market.
