All about FP&M SETA

The FP&M Sector consists of 13 sub-sectors:

Clothing
Footwear
Forestry
Furniture
General goods
Leather
Packaging
Printing
Print media
Publishing
Pulp and paper
Textiles
Wood products

 

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, animal skins/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 (automotive, health and building construction to name a few).
