US-based packaging company Sealed Air has entered a strategic partnership with Box On Demand and Panotec to strengthen its packaging portfolio.
Established in 1986 and based in Treviso, Italy, Panotec provides 3D equipment platforms for on-demand box creation.
Box On Demand is the exclusive North American partner of Panotec, which also manufactures equipment platforms.
Sealed Air product care division president Kenneth Chrisman said: "This partnership further strengthens our leading portfolio of right-sized solutions.
"The capabilities of Box On Demand are a powerful complement to the automated system technology pioneered by B+ Equipment – including I-Pack, e-Cube, and Ultipack – which became a part of the Sealed Air family in 2015, as well as our own internally developed platforms including the FloWrap Automated Mailer and PriorityPak."
The partnership agreement allows Sealed Air to exclusively supply Box on Demand equipment to Panotec’s customers based in the US, Canada and Mexico.
According to Chrisman, the solutions reduce waste, freight cost, warehouse space and carbon emissions.
Chrisman added: "This partnership allows us to create the perfect package for any combination of SKUs – cut to fit and optimised for minimum packaging and maximum protection."
Sealed Air provides protection solutions and packaging automation, as well as employs around 23,000 employees.
The company’s portfolio includes Cryovac food packaging solutions, bubble wrap and Diversey cleaning and hygiene solutions.
