FTA Europe represents the common interests of the European flexographic printing industry
What is flexographic printing?
Flexographic, or flexo, printing machines use flexible relief plates which can be used for printing on a wide range of materials (substrates). This includes plastic, metal and paper. Flexo is the single largest printing process in Europe, and is a growing sector due to its use in the packaging and label producer markets – fueled by the growth in eCommerce. The valued output of the flexo printing industry in 2018 was €39.2 billion.
How does FTA Europe represent the flexo industry?
FTA Europe is the common platform for national flexo associations in Europe. We collaborate in the areas of:
- Education and vocational training of flexo machine operators, users and stakeholders
- Qualification and certification of the flexo curriculum
- Harmonisation and standardisation of flexo best practices
- Representation of common interests towards pan-European stakeholders

Are you a national flexo association and want to find out more about our membership offer? We also have an affiliated membership offer for companies in countries without a flexo association. Please contact the FTA Europe Secretariat for more information.
The office of FTA Europe is in Brussels, shared with Intergraf, the European printing and graphics industry federation.
