SPMC was formed in June of 1994 as a council of the Flexible Packaging Association (FPA). Membership in SPMC is open to FPA member companies whose primary activity is the conversion of raw materials into flexible packaging or packaging components for medical devices.
FPA serves as the voice for the $20 billion U.S. flexible packaging industry. FPA’s members convert or supply the raw materials used to produce bags, pouches, labels, liners, wraps, rollstock and other flexible products. Produced from paper, plastic film, aluminum foil or any combination of these materials, flexible packaging is now the second largest segment of the U.S. packaging market.
FPA offers industry information, financial benchmarking, market research, human resources, marketing, safety and government affairs and regulatory programs that help its members meet an array of ever-changing business challenges. For more information, please visit FPA’s website at www.flexpack.org.
