About Us

European Plastic Product Manufacturer (EPPM) is the leading pan-European magazine for plastics processors, machinery manufacturers, and brand owners. Published by Rapid Plastics Media Ltd., EPPM is an internationally recognised market leader in publishing, exhibitions and websites. EPPM is the sister publication to British Plastics & Rubber (BP&R) and Middle Eastern Plastics, as well as the world-renowned Interplas exhibition.

Established in 1999, we know a thing or two about the plastics industry in Europe — who the key companies are, and the people within them who make the buying and purchasing decisions. Now in its 22nd year, EPPM has never been better placed to work with your company to support you in your marketing activity. Put simply, we can help you sell more of your products and services to the European plastic manufacturing industry.

We can sum up the year ahead with EPPM in just one word: ‘investment’. Investment in our circulation, investment in our website, investment in our global directory, and last but not least, investment in you, the advertiser. We have made these investments in these competitive and changing times to make sure we can offer you the best possible marketing platforms for your advertising spend.
