Downgauging has resulted in a packaging weight reduction of 20 percent
Sappi North America, a producer and supplier of diversified paper and packaging products, is to combine two key business units, packaging and release.
Since joining the lead team in 2013, the release business has improved its operational efficiencies and expanded its offerings beyond its traditional business, including the introduction of Neoterix ST bacteria-resistant products.
The combination also comes with leadership changes, as detailed here here.
Mark Gardner, president and CEO of Sappi North America, said: ‘The future is exciting, and we are confident that this combination of our release and packaging businesses, together with the increased leadership, will only make it stronger.’
