The election of the winners of etma’s competition „Tube of the Year 2023“ and the presentation of the winning tubes took place in Amsterdam at the end of May 2023. The annual conference of the European Tube Manufacturers Association (etma) and the third World Tube Congress, which was organised by etma and attracted a lot of attention, provided a suitable setting for the award ceremony. A jury of seven representatives of etma member companies selected the winners in the categories of aluminium tubes, plastic tubes, laminate tubes, sustainability and prototypes. Beyond the borders of Europe, etma’s competition is regarded as a recognised yardstick for the performance of the industry and as an internationally valid benchmark for creativity, innovation and quality all around flexible tubes.
