For the second year in a row, AR Metallizing is National Winner in Belgium for The European Business Awards, Europe’s largest business competition, for the category Environmental and Corporate Sustainability.

AR Metallizing was chosen by a panel of independent judges as the best in their country in this Awards’ category and will now go on to represent Belgium in the final stage of the competition.


AR Metallizing thanks its success in the European Business Awards’ competition to its innovative and highly attractive packaging board SilberBoard, a great-looking yet fully sustainable alternative to conventional plastic packaging. SilberBoard enables premium brands to get rid of plastic packaging and offers a stunning, fully recyclable and compostable board.

Bart Devos, CEO of AR Metallizing said: “Valuing consumer, employee and eco-friendly issues are an important core corporate value. We are very proud of the European Business Awards’ recognition of AR Metallizing. We operate transparently and actively nurture these practices. Our success is a team accomplishment that involves every employee at AR Metallizing.”

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, said: “We wanted to recognise more widely the many incredible business success stories from across Europe.“The talent, dedication and innovation at the heart of these companies creates jobs and opportunity, and is what drives their country’s prosperity. The ‘Ones to Watch’ lists will set a benchmark of success for the European business community.”

The National Winners from each country will face further judging, and the final Category Winners will be announced at the European Business Awards Gala Final in Warsaw, Poland on 23rd May 2018.
