Fibre Processing & Manufacturing Sector Education & Training Authority (FP&M SETA)

The Fibre Processing and Manufacturing (FP&M) SETA was established by the Honourable Minister of Higher Education and Training on 1 April 2011 after government took a decision to cluster sectors in order to strengthen value-chain linkages between related industries. 

The FP&M SETA consist of 13 sub-sectors, namely the clothing, footwear, forestry, furniture, general goods, leather, packaging, printing, print media, publishing, pulp and paper, textiles and wood products sectors.

Although classified individually, the sub-sectors are closely integrated. Together they create tremendous value in the lives of consumers by converting lumber, pulp, natural or synthetic fibres, and animal skin/hides into finished products such as furniture, clothing, shoes, protective equipment, paper and paper board, printing (books, magazines etc.) industrial fabrics and extending into high-tech applications in many different industries such as automotive, health and building construction, to name a few. 

If you think about it, you can’t go through a day without using one or more of the products manufactured in the fibre processing and manufacturing sector. 

Attend the 65th IPM Convention & Exhibition from just ZAR600.
