Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress.

The deal is valued at a cash consideration of approximately $36.5m depending on certain post-closing adjustments and potential earn-out consideration.

IPG president and CEO Greg Yull said: “Packaging automation and system design are playing an increasingly important role in our customer’s competitive positioning, especially in the e-commerce market. We believe this acquisition will provide us with the opportunity to move upstream in our target customer’s production process with an expanded product bundle and a continuous supply of consumables.

“This acquisition delivers on both fronts. We remain committed to paying down debt moving forward as our cash flows improve with contributions from our recent CapEx investments and our earlier acquisitions. At the same time, we will continue to be disciplined in our approach to acquisitions that strengthen our product bundle or offer strategic benefit to IPG, meeting our customer’s needs.”

The acquisition will improve IPG’s products that are increasingly important in packaging automation.

In addition, the deal will add engineering automation and integrated robotic design talent to IPG’s existing engineering and design teams.

The deal is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2020. It is subject to customary closing conditions and approvals.

Based in Chicago, Illinois, US, Nortech specialises in manufacturing, assembling and servicing automated packaging machines under the Nortech Packaging and Tishma Technologies brands.

The company has customers in various sectors including food, pharmaceutical, e-commerce, confections, personal care, cosmetics, and beverage.
