EPS is currently the only packaging material industry with such a global partnership. These associations represent the EPS industry in North America, Europe and Asia respectively. INEPSA has a long history of sharing information and resources to facilitate the betterment of the EPS industry in their individual markets, but the launch of the new website is the first product of INEPSA collaboration.
