Acimga, the Association of Italian manufacturers of machines for the graphics, paper converting and converting industries, has recently launched a new group within the association, the Italian Corrugated Cardboard Group. The dedicated group was presented to the corrugated industry via a streamed press conference, attended by the Director of Acimga, Andrea Briganti and Alessandro Bersanetti, President of Emmepi Group.
“Italy is at the top of the exporting countries for machines for the production of corrugated board. Over the last ten years, export volumes have doubled and the trend shows no sign of stopping, with a forecast for 2023 that stands at over €100m worth of exported machines. This trend is another reason why the creation of the Corrugated Cardboard Group is of strategic importance with a high added value, and I believe that this group will have growing success,” comments Andrea Briganti, Director of Acimga.
Eight companies have already joined, including: Emmepi Group, Erhardt + Leimer, Fosber, NE Engineering, New Aerodinamica, Re, Simec Group and Vega Group.
