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.

Based in Warwick, Rhode Island, Jay Packaging provides printing, folding cartons, and plastic components across the US northeast region.

The company provides niche packaging for various sectors including beauty, home, and health markets.

Through this integration, both the companies will complement their capabilities in high-end printing and decorating, folded carton packaging carded blister, and thermoformed.

Rohrer Corporation CEO Steve Wirrig said: “Jay Packaging Group is an innovative company with talented employees. It’s exciting to expand our operations to the East Coast and invest in the people, plants, and profitability of both businesses.

“Together, we can provide our customers with best of both worlds – unbeatable packaging solutions through Rohrer’s ezCombo programmes and custom printing and packaging options through Jay Packaging Group.”

The acquisition will strengthen Rohrer’s national manufacturing presence and furthers its eco-friendly packaging target.

In addition, Jay Packaging customers will have access to Rohrer’s inclusive suite of packaging solutions.

Financial terms of the transaction are not disclosed.

Jay Packaging Group CEO and co-owner Richard Kelly said: “I am proud of our team, and the business we have built over the years. I am confident the integration of Jay Packaging Group into Rohrer’s network will make both organisations stronger, and position us for further investment, growth and job creation.”

In October this year, Rohrer acquired Coburn Carton Solutions, a company specialising in printing and converting folding cartons.
