The Paper Manufacturers Association of South Africa (PAMSA) has been promoting the interests and efforts of the South African pulp and paper industry since 1992. It provides a forum for the development and presentation of common views on pre-competitive industry issues, and engages stakeholders on matters of legislation, skills upliftment, education, research, environment, sustainability, and recycling.

PAMSA, which currently represents more than 90% of the paper manufacturers in South Africa, is involved in numerous activities which are governed by an annual general meeting for members.

Any employer involved in the manufacture of pulp, paper, board, tissue and recycled paper may hold PAMSA membership.
