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 transaction complements Pretium’s injection moulding and personal care and beauty offerings.

The company will offer blow-moulded containers to Pretium customers and nationally expand its presence.

Pretium president and CEO Paul Kayser said: “We are pleased to welcome co-owners Joseph M Brodner and John Brodner, and the Olcott employees, to the Pretium organisation.

“The acquisition brings significant beauty care packaging expertise and a robust product line to the Pretium portfolio, which nicely complement the health and beauty care packaging offerings already in our portfolio. We are proud to add Olcott to our family of brands.”

Pretium will also retain existing employees and management of Olcott as part of the deal.

US-based investment bank P&M Corporate Finance (PMCF) served as the financial advisor to Olcott in relation to the transaction.

“We are excited to be able to offer our customers a broader product portfolio and national footprint while continuing to provide the same level of service.”

In a joint statement, Joseph and John Brodner said: “Joining forces with Pretium is a perfect fit for the next chapter of Olcott Plastics.

“We are excited to be able to offer our customers a broader product portfolio and national footprint while continuing to provide the same level of service they are accustomed to receiving from Olcott. We believe this transaction will be beneficial to both our customers and employees.”

Based in Charles, Illinois, Olcott offers primary packaging solutions to beauty and healthcare companies.

The company offers various services, including injection moulding, single and double wall polypropylene (PP) jars decoration, PET jars, as well as injection moulding and lining of PP closures.
