ABOUT US

Ethiopian plastic and rubber association (EPR) established in 2004 is the only association to promote development and growth of Ethiopian plastic and rubber industry. Statistics show that there are more than 4,000 /four thousand/ plastic and rubber product manufacturers in Ethiopia. Recently more than five hundred of them are members of EPR and the number is rapidly increasing. EPR is also keen to work with technical institutes, universities and colleges in order to create expertise on the field and address employment issues in the plastic and rubber industry.

Regular seminar, conference and meetings are held with government bodies and other stakeholders. Business delegations to PTexpo, K, China plas, Taipei plas and other exhibitions are organized regularly.

We need machinery, molds, plastic raw material, and additive manufacturers around the world to support our members on training, new technologies promotions, know how…. 

Being the only plastic and rubber association, EPR is the member of Ethiopian chamber of commerce and recognized by Ethiopian Chemical institute, Trade and industry ministers, customs commission and the government of Ethiopia, and has represented our members on policy preparations, rules and regulations of the government.

As EPR  our job is to collect the manufacturers data and change it to a useful information for both the manufacturer and other stack-holders, to represent our sector in any government office, advocate policy changes and so on. Our main objective is to benefit our members in all aspects.  We believe in cooperation and team work.

We would love to work with any related associations, machinery manufacturers and material suppliers around the world for a mutual benefit.
