FTA Europe was founded as an ‘ASBL’ association according to Belgian Law and has its registered address in the offices of Intergraf, the European printing industry association, in Brussels.
The founding members are ATEF (Spain), ATF (France), ATIF (Italy), EFIA (United Kingdom) and EFTA Benelux. Membership is open to national flexo associations in Europe. As of 2019, we also have an affiliated membership offer for companies in countries without a flexo association.
