On 5th. August, 1988 this loose assembly of enthusiastic factories was finally qualified to be registered and the Malaysian Corrugated Carton Manufacturers?Association (MACCMA) was given its official birth certificate with 16 members spread over the many states of Peninsula Malaysia. 19 years later, we have 29 ordinary members and 28 associate members. Only we, as members through our untiring efforts, can determine our future direction and success.
The Committee has given deep thought to this and two very important and far-reaching decisions were made towards this end, viz.:-
1995 Companies/firms in trades related to our industry can now apply to be Associate Members of MACCMA.
1996 MACCMA was one of the founding member of the Asian Corrugated Case Association (ACCA) and was further elected to be the 2nd. Vice-President of the first Executive Committee. In 2001, MACCMA became the President of ACCA for a term of 2 years.
In recent years, MACCMA has held meetings/worked with various government departments like MIDA, Customs, MITI and DOE on behalf of its members on various issues affecting the corrugated industry. MACCMA has also held educational seminars, overseas study trips, annual dinners and social gatherings for the benefit of its members.
We have thus come a long way and we are sure with the commitment of members and assistance and support from Associates and other affiliated bodies we shall labour forward towards the 21st. Century with confidence.
