Association headquarters is located in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area of the US, with membership of molded fiber product manufacturers, governmental agencies, universities and related organizations throughout the world. It is mainly supported by membership dues from the molded fiber industry and related organizations. IMFA with its extensive reasearch and experience, is the primary source of molded fiber product information and the only “exclusively” international molded fiber group worldwide.
