Fuller’s (Vandais Heights, MN) folding carton adhesives are designed for a variety of board types and line speeds across joint, window, and film laminating applications.
“I welcome all of our newest members,” said Ben Markens, President of PPC. “I am pleased that many large integrated firms as well as smaller independents have been recognizing the value of a PPC membership.”
With the folding carton market slated to enjoy moderate growth through 2018, converters and suppliers to the industry are seeking out ways to increase their market share—and protect against competing substrates. PPC membership provides an array of resources to do just that.
Access to PPC’s folding carton industry data benchmarking reports is a driving factor in many firms’ decisions to join the association. By aggregating participant data, PPC’s exclusive benchmarking reports provide invaluable information on the state of the industry, carton shipments, compensation, and more.
Members also join PPC for networking and educational opportunities. By coming together twice a year at the bi-annual conferences, member companies build close connections and learn best practices from one another and during general sessions and workshops.
“I’m thrilled that more companies in the folding carton industry are recognizing the power of association,” said Lou Kornet, Vice President of PPC. “The more experiences and business philosophies we can pool together, the more valuable the power of association becomes.”
PPC members also enjoy access to exclusive studies, webinars, and legislative updates, as well as opportunities to participate in special workshops and publicity-generating programs such as TICCIT and the North American Paperboard Packaging Competition.
