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 new facility is located in the Town of Henrietta, New York, around 15 miles from the company’s existing operations in Victor, New York.

Currently, the site is nearing completion and is slated to start operations on 1 February.

The step will more than double Premier Packaging’s operating space to over 105,000ft2 from approximately 42,000ft2.

Premier Packaging president and CEO Jason Grady said: “I am proud of the fortitude and ongoing dedication of our team. They have gone above and beyond to meet the essential packaging needs of our customers, thus allowing their businesses to continue running during a unique time in history.

“We continue to expand Premier’s staffing as we near the February opening of the new facility and ultimately expect to grow our staff count by more than 50% from prior levels. In addition to increasing our workforce, we are also investing approximately $12m in CAPEX into the new facility, with the addition of new equipment and engineering a lean manufacturing process tailored to increase efficiencies and ultimately improve our delivery to our customer needs.”

Premier Packaging, a subsidiary of multinational firm Document Security Systems (DSS), supplies foldable, fibre-based packing solutions that replaces traditional plastic packaging.

The company initially announced the expansion in April this year in a bid to meet the increasing consumer demand.
