Printpack and Sirane announce a Strategic Partnership
Printpack, a US-based manufacturer of flexible and specialty rigid packaging, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Sirane, a UK-based leader in paper coating and paper-based packaging. Together, the two companies will jointly enable customers to reach their sustainability goals by offering recyclable, coated paper packaging. The combination of Printpack’s printing and laminating knowledge with Sirane’s paper coating and pouch forming expertise creates the perfect partnership to fulfill the market need.
Well over half of US consumers rank paperboard or paper as extremely or very sustainable. Further research reveals that 66% of US consumers think that paper is best for the environment. Its wide ability to be recycled helps positively position paper in the minds of consumers. Recyclability is one of the features most associated with environmentally friendly packaging.
Dave McLain, Sustainability Director with Printpack, says “We’ve been collaborating with Sirane for some time now and were immediately impressed with their technology, capabilities, and culture. I’m excited about what they bring to the table and together being able to provide paper based packaging solutions that our customers are keen to commercialize.”
“As a business, we pride ourselves on being innovators and leaders in the packaging industry. We work tirelessly to understand the needs of our customers and develop the truly sustainable packaging solutions that the market is demanding. We have invested significant time and resources in the last few years. Change is almost impossible without industry-wide collaboration and cooperation. We have been working with Printpack to see how we could get our Earth Packaging stateside and after many positive meetings we are excited to start our strategic partnership,” says Peter Ralten, Head Specialist, Packaging and Machinery Sirane (Global).
By the second quarter of 2022, Printpack and Sirane will be fully operational and able to produce and supply trial rolls for testing and product verification.
