The Fibre Box Association (FBA) is a non-profit trade association that represents North American corrugated packaging manufacturers and strives to grow, protect and enhance the overall well-being of the industry by providing member-valued programs and services.  


The Fibre Box Association (FBA) has a long-standing heritage of serving the corrugated industry.   Founded in 1940, the association brought together both independent and integrated companies with a common interest in the issues, trends, technical challenges, and overall well being of the corrugated industry.

Over the years, the purpose has largely remained the same, but more recently, changes in the make-up of the industry and a transition in the association's leadership have caused FBA's core governing body, the Executive Committee, to rethink the association's vision and strategies.

On February 1, 2012 the Executive Committee met to evaluate FBA's strategies. 
The outcome of that meeting, a follow-up conference call with the group and some additional staff work has led to a vision, mission, core values, operating principles and strategies aimed at carrying FBA over the next several years and maybe even 72 more.

 

Vision:

To be the most trusted voice in the North American corrugated packaging industry. 

Mission:

  • Review and question the association's activities to assure they are meeting or exceeding member needs.
