Belgian and Dutch corrugated cardboard industry join forces

Belgian and Dutch corrugated cardboard industry join forces

The Belgian and Dutch corrugated cardboard industry have joined forces to become the Corrugated Benelux Association with a main office in Brussels.

Independent organizations cease to exist

President of the association will be Belgian Paul Bissens, assistend by the Dutch vice-president Joost Simons. With the arrival of the Corrugated Benelux Association, the Belgian and Dutch organizations (Belgische Vereniging van Golfkartonfabrikanten and Nederlandse Vereniging Golfkarton) will cease to exist. Toon Schrijver, who has been in charge of Vereniging Golfkarton for more than 22 years, will retire on 1 April.

 

For legal reasons, the Stichting Golfkarton, with Peter van Ostaijen as its new director since 1 January 2016, was founded to make sure the Dutch participation in the association is enabled.  He has plenty of experience with several organizations within this branch. On top of his position at Stichting Golfkarton, he is also the new association's secretary, alongside Belgian Lieve vanlierde.
