The SME Forum was established in 2006 to establish a cross border European platform for owners and managers of independent, family owned medium sized carton manufacturers with a European focus, to network, benchmark, identify best practices and exchange management experience on issues like lean manufacturing, succession, young executive development, company valuation etc.

The SME Forum is all about sharing best practices. Each year the forum performs a benchmark, exchanging and compairing the SME Forum member's KPI's. 

Meetings of the SME Forum are organised in springtime at member company sites.  

The ECMA SME Forum is chaired by Robert Davison of Alexir Packaging Ltd. (UK) and supported by Mike Turner (ECMA).
