Americk, packaging supplier, has invested heavily into a brand new facility offering a 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 and 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.” Lucy Shepherd the recently appointed group innovation manager adds. “Our aim is to deliver outstanding new packaging development utilising our group capabilities and technical expertise aligned to consumer, customer and retailer needs. ”
Americk Packaging’s key point of difference, in an industry where innovation has become a prerequisite, is their ability to produce multiple packaging solutions, including a variety of labelling concepts, carton profiles and a vast flexibles 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 and shelf-life extension through to market insight and consumer trends”.
The official launch event is currently in planning offering retailers, brand owners and manufacturers the opportunity to visit the Wigan operation. Americk Packaging consists of six manufacturing sites spread across the UK & Ireland.
