The member companies of etma, the European Tube Manufacturers Association , produce about eleven billion tubes a year. In an increasingly difficult economic environment, the tube’s growth has been moderate but continuous – and not without good reason.
The tube is the ideal form of packaging for semi-solid contents. Thanks to the materials and material combinations used it offers a barely attainable range of benefits: the highest standards of hygiene, excellent barrier properties, outstanding product protection, virtually unlimited design opportunities, real consumer benefits, and trend-setting environmental sustainability – and always in top quality.
The etma member companies play a decisive role here. They represent about 70 per cent of European tube production and are world leaders with regard to quality standards.
