Nearly 90 percent of Fibre Box Association members are Independent Corrugators or Independent Sheet Plants. Active independent members agree they're more competitive in business because of their participation in FBA's standing committees and focused independent networking opportunities. FBA offers two different annual Independent conferences, and has an Independent Committee.
