Welcome to the Tube Council North America’s website. This site is intended for you (existing or potential tube users) looking to find out more information about squeeze tubes.
The Tube Council North America ( TCNA ) is the Association representing all companies manufacturing tubes in North America, as well as their major suppliers and partners. Together, we are united to promote and demonstrate to Consumer Goods Brands why tubes are convenient, innovative, competitive and sustainable over other types of packaging in the personal care, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food and household markets. We are also keen on demonstrating the benefits in terms of quality and service in using suppliers producing locally in North America. We are the voice of the industry in North America and we want to make sure we are all working together to meet our customers’ expectations.
The Tube Council meets twice annually for its general membership meetings. The meetings are typically held in conjunction with a Packaging Trade Show that we either visit or attend as exhibitors. The details are posted on this website. Our conferences are a unique platform to meet and exchange with all the industry within a small, diverse, and professional group. We always like to welcome keynote speakers from Consumer Goods Brands using tubes to hear Brand’s vision of the emerging trends; particularly as they apply to tubes and overall packaging. Feel free to contact us if you are interested to share your expectations; your input would be appreciated.
Additional Tube Council programs include the annual Tube of the Year competition which recognizes outstanding Innovation and Execution from our members. All entries are reviewed and ranked by a jury composed of sourcing, marketing and technical decision makers at Brands using tubes. Feel free to contact us if you are interesting in participating as a jurist in the 2018 competition at the end of the year; it’s a great opportunity to review the “crème de la crème “ in tubes.
The Board of Directors of the Tube Council and I welcome you to explore the benefits of membership in the Tube Council and join us to participate with your peers in the tube packaging industry. Together, we can share new ideas and initiatives and the long term strength of this association. If you are researching various tube options, please reach out to our member companies or contact us, our Tube Council secretary will respond quickly to your inquiry.
