UK-based sustainable packaging provider DS Smith Plastics has opened an office building in Atlanta, Georgia, US.

Expected to expand the company’s presence in North America, this move follows the company’s acquisition of Interstate Resources, Corrugated Container and The Display Connection. The expansion is in response to consumer demand for sustainable packaging solutions in North America.

Located in the Buckhead neighbourhood of Atlanta, the facility will serve more than 50 employees across the company’s sales, marketing, finance, legal and technical departments.

DS Smith global CEO Miles Roberts said: “We’ve always thrived on finding innovative ways to help customers achieve more for less: sell more, reduce costs, manage risk and complexity in their supply chain.

“For years, we’ve helped companies across industries, from pharma and consumer packaged goods to retail and e-commerce, to redefine packaging across the world, and this expansion marks a key milestone in our journey to bring our innovative business model to the US.”

As part of the expansion, the company has added several executives to its North America packaging and paper team during the first half of this year.
