Logistics BusinessUK Packaging Supplier Opens Customer-Focused Innovation Centre

Americk Packaging has unveiled a new innovation centre, which encompasses a multi-substrate, multi-category Packaging Centre of Excellence.

The specialist packaging supplier has invested heavily into a brand new dedicated facility offering what it calls an impressive group resource located at its Wigan plant. The Innovation Centre covers all divisions of Americk Packaging, which has recently been acquired by Saica Group.

Group Retail Director, Josephine Morgan commented. “Our customers will be able to interact with our Sales & Marketing, Retail, Technical and Innovation teams in a creative and inspiring space. Encouraging visionary thinking, new product development and the ability to deliver fully printed sample mock-ups on any substrate all under one roof.”

Americk Packaging says its key point of difference in an industry where innovation has become a prerequisite, is the “ability to produce multiple packaging solutions including a variety of labelling concepts, carton profiles and a vast flexible portfolio”. Josephine Morgan expands on this point. “Our expertise in the packaging market is enviable. The new Innovation Centre provides a hub for our customers to tap into this knowledge targeting colour management, circular manufacturing processes, shelf-life extension through to market insight and consumer trends.”

The official launch event is currently in the planning offering retailers, brand owners and manufacturers the opportunity to visit the Wigan operation. Americk Packaging consists of 6 manufacturing sites spread across the UK & Ireland.
