OFPANZ work closely with the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI), the largest international organisation representing the specialty fabrics industry, and the Specialised Textiles Association (STA), the Australian industry association, to provide our members with opportunities to connect industry members around the world.
Membership to OFPANZ includes a full annual membership to the IFAI where OFPANZ members select one of 12 IFAI divisions to be involved with and have access to all IFAI member resources. Members have enjoyed attending the annual IFAI Expo as well as the Marine Fabricators Conference held in America. You will also gain additional exposure with listings in IFAI’s membership directory.
OFPANZ and STA work very closely with each other. This includes collaborating at conferences, sharing ideas and resources. OFPANZ members receive STA member pricing when they attend STA events. In 2017, STA and OFPANZ held their first conference together in Queenstown. We are looking forward to planning another conference together soon.
