EFIA Board Celebrate 100th Anniversary Board Meeting

imageThe Board of the European Flexographic Industry Association was recently delighted to celebrate their 100th Board Meeting since the inception of the organisation. Very kindly hosted by DS Smith Packaging, the Board held its 100th Board meeting at the prestigious Belper site and was presented with a celebration cake by Mr Tony Foster, Senior Director of DS Smith Packaging.


Commenting on the progress of the Association, Tony Foster said “It is vital that trade associations such as EFIA continue to thrive in our ever changing environment and support us to attract and train new blood into our industry. The work EFIA is doing with the Academy 2 e-modular training system, running the annual print competition to recognise print standards of excellence amongst member companies and in bringing together flexo printers on common causes, is to be applauded. It is commendable that the association is run by a group of volunteers and we know that working full time, as well as supporting your industry association, is not an easy task in today’s hectic world! EFIA is doing a great job and I’m delighted to see them pass this key milestone in their history.”


Dr David Galton, recently re-elected as Chairman of EFIA stated: “EFIA is going from strength to strength with the development of Academy2 and the passion that our Board Members put into driving our trade association forward. I look forward to our 200th Board Meeting which I’m sure will come around all too quickly!”
