The Paper Industry Technical Association (PITA) is an independent organisation which
operates for the general benefit of its members – both individual and corporate – in promoting
and communicating the technological aspects of paper manufacture and related Fibrous
Forest Products. Formed in 1920, it has served the Industry – both manufacturers and allied
trades – for almost a century.

Preferential access to PITA technical meetings, visits and events.

Access to information on the International stage thanks to PITA’s membership of EUCEPA, the
European Liaison Committee for Pulp and Paper Technical Associations which represents 14 national
Associations from European countries. Outside of Europe, PITA maintains regular dialogue with its
many sister organisations, including: APPITA (Australia); PAPTAC (Canada); TAPPI (USA) and
TAPPSA (South Africa). In addition, PITA attends or is represented at several major pan-European
Papermaking Exhibitions each year. Maintaining this level of contact throughout the world means PITA
members obtain up to date information about all that is happening in the modern global Paper Industry.
