Edelmann USA has joined the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC), the North American association for paperboard packaging manufacturers and their suppliers.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Germany-based Edelmann GmbH, Edelmann USA was formed in June 2016 and has locations in Ontario, California and Pulaski, Tennessee. As a whole, the globally operating Edelmann Group employs more than 2,800 people in its 19 plants worldwide.
The Edelmann Group designs and manufactures folding cartons and rigid boxes for: the healthcare sector, including prescription medications, over-the-counter medications and diagnostic tools; the beauty care sector, including perfume, skincare cosmetics, makeup and hair color; and consumer brands that sell home electronics and multimedia, wine and spirits, food and confectionary, tobacco as well as nonfood products.
Committed to excellence in the production of paperboard packaging worldwide, Edelmann constantly strives to set standards in quality management, efficiency, delivery, reliability and sustainability.
PPC president Ben Markens said: “I welcome Edelmann USA to the PPC community.
“With the many resources and vast network the association has to offer, I hope they leverage membership in order to better their business.”
“We’re very excited to get involved with PPC and to become an active member of the network,” said Krzysztof Krupa, president of Edelmann USA. “Learning industry best practices and participating in the industry benchmarking program are at the top of our list.”
PPC members receive access to the only folding carton exclusive data reporting program in the industry, webinars, white papers and legislative updates. They get opportunities to attend informative biannual conferences, discounted registration to key training sessions like Folding Carton Boot Camp and can also participate in publicity-generating programs such as TICCIT and the North American Paperboard Packaging Competition.
PPC also facilitates several communities of interest, including the Rigid Box Committee, the Canadian Converters Committee, the Women’s Leadership Committee and the New Generation Leaders group.
