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.

Established in 1990, PB Packaging supplies plastic, glass and other forms of rigid packaging in Australia.

The company serves the health, industrial, food and automotive industries and was previously a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro-Pac Packaging,

The acquisition of PB is intended to expedite TricorBraun’s presence in Australia and its global expansion.

The financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

TricorBraun president and CEO Court Carruthers said: “We are pleased to expand our services to customers in Australia while supporting PB Packaging’s growth.

“The PB team shares our strong commitment to innovation, quality and exceptional customer service, and we are happy to officially welcome them to the TricorBraun family.”

The closure comes after TricorBraun and PB Packaging entered an agreement for the deal in April this year.

Following the acquisition, TricorBraun will operate the company as PB Packaging, a TricorBraun company.

At the time of announcing the deal, TricorBraun agreed to retain PB’s current leadership team and offer positions to all 140 of its employees.

It also operates an award-winning Design & Engineering Centre, which aims to provide forward-thinking design driven by consumer insight and creative solutions.

Since its founding, TricorBraun has acquired and expedited the growth of 36 packaging companies worldwide by partnering with their management teams.
