Sustainable packaging solution producer Amcor has announced a significant expansion of its North American printing and converting capabilities for the dairy market.  

This move aims to support the growing need for flexible packaging in the region.  

Amcor said that it will install advanced equipment, primarily in north-east Wisconsin, over the next 18 months. 

The investment will increase its capacity while optimising network reliability and responsiveness to better serve customers in what it deems an essential market. 

Amcor Flexibles North America Dairy vice-president and general manager Derrick Sytsma said: “Amcor is committed to deliver innovation, service flexibility, and agility that will ultimately enhance our customer’s experience. 

“This strategic investment represents the largest of its kind in Amcor Flexible North America’s extensive history within the cheese business and solidifies our commitment to the dairy industry, as well as continued support of our customers’ growth.”

The investment complements Amcor’s packaging portfolio, which includes advanced technologies for both retail and foodservice.  

It will also facilitate customer shifts to the company’s recyclable, high-performance packaging solution, AmPrima Plus.  

Sytsma added: “We’re excited to be a true growth partner in helping our dairy customers navigate ever-changing market requirements and anticipating and meeting their needs now and into the future.” 

In February this year, Amcor announced the expansion of its thermoforming production capacity in North America with the installation of advanced automated thermoforming equipment at its healthcare manufacturing plant in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
