“The Pro Carton ECMA Award competition has been a must for us for many years. We were delighted that in 2015 and in 2016 we were the most successful company overall. This gives us confidence that we are on the right path and provided extra motivation and pride into the organization. Of course, we will participate again in 2017 Pro Carton ECMA Award and we will do our very best to repeat the successes of the last 2 years.”Harald Schulz, CEO AR Packaging
