A.M.E. – The Spanish Light Metal Packaging Association

AME -Asociación Metalgráfica Española- is the trade association of light metal packaging producers, including aerosol cans and metal closures, both aluminium and tinplate. Founded in 1927, it is one of the oldest trade associations in Spain.  

AME, acting in the representation, promotion and defense of the interests of the member companies, is at national level member of CONFEMETAL (Confederation of Spanish Metal Sector Employers’ Organizations) and, at European level, member of EMPAC (European Metal Packaging).

The sector is formed both by big multinational companies and family companies of Spanish capital and different sizes and represents an added annual turnover closed to two billion Euros. These companies employ some 5000 workers and represent a annual raw material consumption, both national and imported, of over 600.000 tonnes of tinplate and TFS.

The sector exports a 21% of its production. Europe  is a major client market where 90% of the exports are sold. Spain is one of the four leading countries in light metal packaging and counts on a high technological level and a good auxiliary industry with his own technology.

As regards the environmental commitment of AME, our association is member of ECOACERO, entity representing steel under the framework of the Spanish integrated management system for packaging “Ecoembes”.

According to the most recent figures, steel packaging has reached the recycling rate of 77% in Spain, what represents more than 230.000 tonnes of recycled steel.
