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 shape-moulded packaging solutions are made from expanded polystyrene (EPS), expanded polypropylene (EPP) and other advanced resins.

Since it was acquired by Mill Point Capital in 2016, Huntington Solutions has experienced growth, including expansion into the cold chain market.

Mill Point Capital partner Dustin Smith said: “We are very proud of what we accomplished together with the Huntington team over the last few years.

“Since the initial transaction in 2016, Huntington has evolved into a leading player in the foam packaging industry and is poised to benefit from continued strong trends in cold chain packaging.”

Mill Point Capital vice president Mark Paolano said: “It has been a pleasure working with Tom Barnes, Ed Flynn, Benjamin Raygoza and the entire team to transform the business, including through multiple acquisitions, to create a diversified packaging leader. We look forward to the continued success and evolution of Huntington.”

Huntington chairman Jim Hamelink said: “The Huntington team has been highly successful in executing upon our value creation plan, positioning the company for long-term growth and market expansion. We are thankful for our partnership.”

In this deal, Huntington Solutions was represented by Raymond James & Associates, Inc.
