Well, that was 10 years we’re never going to get back and, frankly, thank goodness and good riddance. Ushered in with a sneaky Y2K con job and ensuing dotcom business meltdown, followed shortly by 9/11 and all of its toxic geopolitical fallout, and ending off with the nasty Great Recession, the so-called “noughties”—or “oh-ohs” if you prefer— are not likely to be remembered too fondly by most ordinary Canadians and businesses, who simply don’t have the luxury of proroguing their daily economic challenges until their problems magically fix themselves right after the Winter Olympics. But if history repeats itself in 10-year cycles, here’s hoping that the next 10 years will see a return to a more grounded and stable global socioeconomic climate, whereby naked greed and self-interest will be tempered by the more noble aspirations to a cleaner and healthier planet, driven by more conscientious use of 21st Century technologies to build a brighter future for this and following generations. For the global packaging industry, the new decade represents a long-pursued opportunity to become an integral part of a longterm solution to the world’s environmental woes—dispelling the tragically flawed but widely-held perception of packaging being one of the guiltiest culprits behind global warming. Consumers in many parts of the world have clearly made their collective preference features

for more sustainable packaging some time ago, and veering off course now for temporary gain is really not an option for any right-thinking CPG (consumer packaged goods) producer, or their packaging suppliers, with a modicom of sound long-term vision, credible corporate social responsibility, and common business sense. According to a November 2009 report from the BMO Capital Markets Packaging Group, the $37.2-billion (!) North American market for “green packaging” is poised to grow by four to five per cent annually through 2013, far faster than for any conventional packaging products. For companies who have already defined and established distinct niche strengths in this market, such as bioplastics, the potential rewards are higher still. “The use of natural polymers, or plastic materials derived from plant and/or animal sources, are experiencing rapid growth, particularly in packaging applications,” says The Converter report, predicting annual demand growth for biopolymers to average 23 per cent annually, as producers of packaging films, thermoformed containers and foodservice packaging ramp up their spending on this eco-friendly alternative. It is hard to think of another industry where opportunities to achieve corporate altruism and profitability have been so happily converged under one noble greater cause, which is why it would be one of the greatest shames of the new century if those opportunities were to be left begging.

Pack Winemaker looks to big consumer response to the new high-tech labels Picking out the right wine to match the menu and the occasion is something of an acquired skill, but a new high-tech label designed for a thriving Ontario winemaker Château des Charmes promises to make even a novice wine-lover a temporary connoisseur with a simple click of a camera phone. Designed by the Toronto-based branding consultants Fish out of Water Design, the vintner’s new labels—now appearing on 10 of the winemaker’s most popular brands—are the first in the Canadian wine industry to include a scannable QR (Quick Response) Code that instantly connects the consumer to extensive online information on the scanned product right after snapping a picture. “The website contains information about food matches, tasting notes, recipe ideas, wine reviews, a Schott Zweizel wine glass recommendation, and a VIP invitation for two to visit the Château,” says Michèle Bosc, director of marketing at Château des Charmes. “The idea is to lead people

to our website and winery, where they can discover even more about Château des Charmes,” says Bosc, adding she hopes that the QR Code feature will turn out to be an effective marketing hook for attracting a younger, tech-savvy demographic to the company’s upscale, award-winning wines produced at four vineyard sites on the Niagara Peninsula since 1978. Enjoying a long-cultivated industry reputation for producing quality grapes and firm commitment to sustainable viticultural practices, the familyowned winemaker was also keen for the new labels not to alienate the brands’ traditionalcustomer

base, according to Fish out of Water Design. “Our mandate was to take the wines from a fairly traditional look to the right combination of contemporary but classic design,” explains the agency’s vice-president of client services Rebecca Hamilton. Adds vice-president of creative services Charlene Codner: “The key design element of the new labels is the château itself, which is the foundation of the winery’s history. “It’s featured across the top of each wine label, set against a stylized illustration of the Niagara escarpment to give the wines a sense of place and to identify them as Canadian in origin,” Codner relates. Produced by the Kitchener, Ont.-based Allprint Ainsworth Associates Inc., the new labels now feature on all the Château des Charmes wines with a general LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) listing, with more SKUs (stock-keeping units) ready to adopt the QR-Coded labels as the older stock runs out.

New canned drink a dog-lover’s dream Dog-lovers can be a picky bunch when it comes to their beloved canines’ health and diet, but an innovative new dog-treat beverage from a Chicago-based petfood upstart Petrol, Inc.—packaged in high-impact SLEEK aluminum cans manufactured by Rexam PLC—seems to be just what the doctor ordered. Claimed to be formulated by a top veterinary nutrition expert, Petrol contains 100-percent natural flavorings and six added vitamins and minerals, with just eight calories per serving. “Many people want their pets to enjoy the same quality of ingredients in their food and variety they demand for themselves,” says Petrol president Jennifer Smith.“Petrol is better than water in delivering hydration and nutrition to help keep dogs healthy.” Smith says the company chose 12-ounce SLEEK cans to package Petrol based on the high recyclability of aluminum containers, portability, long shelf-life, and high shelf impact. “We worked closely with Petrol to help them launch a product that would establish a whole new beverage category,” says Kip Nickel, vice-president of commercial operations at Rexam Beverage Can North America.“Our 12 -ounce SLEEK can enables this beverage brand to stand out on retail shelves while delivering superior environmental benefits, as well as many filling, distribution and retail display economics.” CANADIAN PACKAGING • JANUAry 2010

l Global branding services group Schawk, Inc. has announced the move of the company’s Canadian-based strategic, creative and executional services from separate branch offices to one centralized location. Now co-located with the Toronto office of Schawk’s Anthem Worldwide strategic design subsidiary (picture above), the company’s Canadian operations will be better positioned to offer its clients true onestop-shop service capabilities, according to Schawk president and chief executive David Schawk. “We believe that unifying our services in Chris Plewes Canada will add potency to Schawk’s brand point management offering,” he states. “The creation of a more holistic work environment will encourage an exchange of knowledge and expertise that inspires innovative solutions and delivers greater value and efficiency to our clients.” Adds Anne Dean, managing director of Anthem’s Canadian operations: “One of the things that differentiates Anthem Worldwide from every other design agency is its ability to express a brand’s strategy through compelling creative that can actually be technically executed. In design, even the most original ideas are only intentions if they can’t be executed in a manner that retains the purity of the designer’s vision.”As part of the move, the company has also appointed Chris Plewes as Schawk’s chief creative officer, responsible for leading the development of Schawk’s creative resources through Anthem and the Schawk specialty groups that deliver creative product. “As the role of strategy and creative is elevated within Schawk to strengthen our brand point management offering, it’s important to give Anthem immediate access to the executional expertise that Schawk has mastered over 50 years,” remarks Bob Cockerill, regional managing director of Schawk’s 12

l St-Bruno, Que.-headquartered corrugated packaging products group Norampac has been awarded the Green Innovation prize of the Quebec Association of Industrial Research for the company’s recentlylaunched waxless NorShield box. Developed as a more environmentally-sustainable alternative to traditional waxed corrugated boxes, the fully-recyclable wax-free NorShield box (see picture)—made from recycled fiber—was chosen a winner in the association’s 19th annual Innovation Gala last December on that basis of its innovative characteristics in sustainable development and positive impact on the environment.The Green Innovation prize was the second major award earned last year by the NorShield container, which also picked up a Gold Award in the 2009 PAC Leadership Awards competition of the PAC (Packaging Association of Canada) in April of 2009. l Hartsville, S.C.-headquartered packaging products conglomerate Sonoco has embarked on a US$2.5-million expansion and renovation of its Sonoco Recycling Center facilities in Columbia, S.C., which will include installation of new state-of-the-art sorting and conveyor equipment—as well as a new high-speed baler to increase singlestream waste volumes—and an estimated 14,700-square-foot expansion of the existing production site. Scheduled for completion this spring, the planned upgrade will allow the operation to process significantly larger volumes of recycled material, according to Sonoco Recycling general manager Marcy Thompson. “This project will allow us to increase, on a significant scale, the amount of materials being processed at the facility, and this will help us meet the growing recycling needs of the community and the

many customers that count on us,” says Thompson, citing an economic impact study showing that every 1,000 tons of material removed from landfills for recycling generates US$3,687 in tax revenues for the state of South Carolina. l Ball Corporation, Broomfield, Colo.headquartered manufacturer of metal and plastic packaging containers for the food-and beverage, household chemicals and other CPG (consumer packaged goods) industries, has completed the sale of its plastic pail manufacturing assets—mostly related to the 110-employee pail manufacturing plant in Newnan, Ga., acquired in the 2006 acquisition of the former U.S. Can Corporation—to BWAY Corporation for approximately US$32 million. l Minneapolis, Minn.-headquartered agrifoods group Cargill, Incorporated has completed the buyout of the remaining 50-percent share in the bioplastics and bioresins producer NatureWorks, LLC from its former joint-venture partner Teijin Limited of Japan, which is said to be in the process of selling off some business assets in response to the economic slump. Operating as a Cargill-Teijin joint venture since late 2007, NatureWorks is one of the world’s leading producers of bio-based plastics and resins derived from 100-percent annually renewable resources, with its Ingeo range of fibers and plastics increasingly used by leading brand-owners in the manufacture of flexible and rigid fresh food packaging, beverage packaging, durable consumer articles, apparel, and personal-care products. l German specialty chemicals producer ALTANA Group has completed the acquisition of Water Ink Technologies, Inc., Lincolton, N.C.-headquartered manufacturer of water-based and UV inks, coatings and varnishes for narrow-web printing applications, with the new assets— comprising three manufacturing facilities in North Carolina—to be integrated into ALTANA’s ACTEGA Coatings & Sealants division under the new name ACTEGA WIT. “This acquisition underlines that even, and especially, in difficult economic times we are fully committed to continue our growth course through suitable acquisitions and to further create value for the company,” says ALTANA’s chief executive Matthias Wolfgruber.

HORMEL’S HUNGER FOR MORE SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING Reducing product packaging here and there may not seem like much, but when it’s done with the sort of company-wide fervor and commitment shown by folks at the Hormel Foods Corporation, the results can be truly awe-inspiring. In fact, having reduced its product packaging by an estimated 5.2 million pounds in 2008, the Austin, Minn.-headquartered manufacturer of consumer-branded meat and food products has developed an enormous appetite for even deeper packaging cuts in the years to come, having launched a number of new sustainable packaging projects that will eliminate millions more pounds of discarded packaging from the global food supply chain. “Our new initiatives build on about 40 packaging reduction projects completed in 2008 and reflect the way we continuously look for means to improve the packaging of our products and reduce our environmental footprint,” says Hormel Foods manager of packaging development Daniel Miller. “In this process, we work with our suppliers to find innovative solutions,” says Miller, citing major ongoing sustainability initiatives involving some of the multinational company’s most popular brands:

• Eliminating extra room in the Jennie-O Turkey Store burgers carton is expected to save more than 175,000 pounds of paperboard annually;

• Taking out an extra paper sleeve out of the Lloyd’s barbecue tubs is expected to eliminate enough solid waste to fill 22 garbage trucks, and save more than 660,000 pounds of paper fiber, annually; • Reducing the thickness of the glass used to produce each jar of Hormel bacon bits will produce annual material savings of around 411,000 pounds; • Reconfiguration of the shipping box for

Hormel Compleats microwave meals has resulted in 23-percent reduction of corrugated packaging materials—translating into annual savings of about 1.2 million pounds; • The redesign of Hormel party trays packaging eliminated the need for about 100,000 pounds of shrinkwrap film, while using smaller boxes to ship cases of the product is projected to save 174,000 pounds of corrugated per year; • Redesign of the shipping box for Hormel pork ribs, butts and bone-in cuts will save about 2.4 million pounds of corrugated annually; • Reducing the height, width and length of each box used to ship Hormel pepperoni has dramatically increased the amount of product on each pallet—with anticipated annual savings of 188,000 pounds of wood fiber and 49,000 pounds of corrugated; • Recent changes to the way the company’s canned food products are shipped is expected to reduce the number of pallets used annually by 14,573 skids, with corresponding reductions in the amount of bundling and stretchwrapping film.

GREEN CLOSURES ANOTHER FEATHER IN TETRA PAK’S CAP While aseptic packaging products group Tetra Pak is already enjoying widespread acclaim as one of the more environmentally progressive packaging businesses around, a new supply agreement with Brazil’s leading petrochemicals producer could make the company’s ubiquitous paperboard drink cartons even more eco-friendly than ever before—thanks to incorporation of plastic caps and closures made entirely from a renewable resource. According to Tetra Pak, its recently-signed deal with Braskem SA to purchase limited quantities of HDPE (high-density polyethylene) plastic derived from sugar cane—to be converted into polyethylene at what is claimed to be the world’s first commercial-scale ‘green’ polyethylene plant in southern Brazil—is indicative of the company’s deep-rooted commitment to minimizing its carbon footprint. Scheduled for startup in early 2011, the 14

new Braskem plant will initially supply Tetra Pak with five kilotons (5,000 metric tons) of renewable HDPE per year—representing just over five per cent of Tetra Pak’s total HDPE demand and slightly less than one per cent of its total annual plastic purchases.

“While this pilot project is only a small first step into green polyethylene, it marks another milestone in our sustainability journey … and underscores our commitment to finding new ways to use renewable materials

in our carton packaging,” says Tetra Pak president Dennis Jönsson, citing notable overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions with Braskem’s technology compared to the traditional petrol-based polyethylene manufacturing process. “We are very pleased to partner with Tetra Pak to supply a viable renewable alternative to traditional polyethylene,” says Braskem chief executive Bernardo Gradin. “This is another step to strengthening our long-standing partnership as a global Tetra Pak supplier, and it demonstrates both companies’ commitment to sustainable development.” Ranking as the largest producer of thermoplastic resins in Brazil and third-largest in the Americas, Braskem operates 18 manufacturing plants across Brazil—each one of them certified to the ISO 14001 international standard for sustainable environmental management practices.

Get off Easy for a Change.

With TorqLOC ®. The keyless hollow shaft mounting system.

TorqLOC’s corrosion-resistant, stainless steel design makes it the perfect choice for production line wash-down environments.

While hollow shaft mounting systems offer advantages over traditional securing methods, they’re extremely susceptible to corrosion. As a result, getting a gearbox off the shaft is difficult, often impossible. The revolutionary TorqLOC makes things easy for a change. TorqLOC is a compact, keyless hollow shaft mounting system that offers manufacturers operating in wash-down environments an unrivalled solution for coupling drive systems to their machinery. With a keyless design that fits a variety of standard shaft sizes without additional machining, TorqLOC reduces operating costs and allows simple, fast assembly by eliminating the need to cut keyways or turn solid shafts to exacting tolerances. Made from bronze and nickel-plated steel, TorqLOC’s tapered bushings are inherently corrosion-resistant, making the system ideal for wash-down environments. And with no corrosion problems, TorqLOC ensures fast and easy removal, even after years of use. With a flexible mounting system and corrosion-free components, you now get off and on easy with TorqLOC. FOR MORE INFORMATION CIRCLE

DRAWING THEIR LINES Packaging line integrators stress teamwork and technical know-how as key prerequisites for continued growth

L

ike an orchestra without a conductor or a music score to guide it along, a nonintegrated packaging line is really no more than a collection of different pieces of static equipment and machinery in search of a common purpose, cause and raison d’être. It may well be one of the biggest paradoxes of modern-age industrial automation that the more fancy automation devices and technologies are introduced into the market—from multiaxis robotics to rapid-response moMarcus Mielke, tion control to ultraManaging Director, sensitive machine Krones Machinery Co., Ltd. vision detectors—the greater grows the need for third-party automation specialists who can make all the different line components and subsystems communicate and interface with each other in a consistent, reliable way that brings out the best of every piece of machinery to enable and maintain optimal packaging line performance.

equipment manufacturer Krones AG, which actually manufactures such a comprehensive range of bottling and canning line equipment that it can easily supply a full turnkey line for food-and-beverage industry customers without any extensive outside assistance—instead drawing on its inhouse pool of programming and systems integration talent. But even so, for CPG (consumer packaged goods) manufacturers looking to make quick

changes to their manufacturing processes, technical expertise and knowledge that extends outside of the equipment vendors’ familiarity with their own equipment can be a priceless commodity. “The larger part of our integration activities usually involve one or more pieces of Krones equipment going into an existing [packaging] line,” says Marcus Mielke, vicepresident and managing director of the comContinues on page 20

to being acknowledged as a supplier of quality conveying equipment. “These days, nearly every time we sell a line or a conveying system, we provide all the related system integration services,” relates Banville, estimating that about 90 per cent of the company’s new orders include requests for integration services.

Jean St-Martin, director of major accounts at the Chateauguay, Que.-based Storcan Conveyor Systems Limited, a long-time supplier of conveyor systems to clients in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food-and-beverage and other CPG industries. “We’ve been involved with helping our customers integrate their lines since we opened our doors in 1976,” states St-Martin, “and today we actually utilize integration services as a way of selling ourselves to our customers. “With most companies having their equipment sourced from a multitude of manufacturers, we know that customers don’t want to have to call five different suppliers to optimize a production line. “That’s why we enjoy being the ‘one-stop source’ for our customers needs,” St-Martin says, adding that line integration services have accounted for 60 to 70 per cent of Storcan’s business over the last several years. “Nearly every time we sell a line or a conveying system, we also provide system integration to go along with it.” Another Quebec conveyor manufacturer and distributor, Candiac-based Newmapak, Ltd., has also attained notable success in leveraging its conveying technology knowledge into a marketable systems

integration skillset, according to company president Robert Kucey. “We jumped at the chance to add integration to our long list of services when, after working with a customer in 2006 we noticed that they called in a third-party electrician to hook up and wire all of the systems and components to our conveyor system,” Kucey recalls. “That’s when we thought it might be prudent for our customer to cut out the middle man, and just use us as an integrator.” While Kucey says he likes to see Newmapak integrate as much of its own equipment as possible, “I also believe it’s very important to work closely with other OEMs, so that the data we get from them can be utilized in a collaborative manner to produce a solution that works best for the customer. “After all, working to provide the optimal

workflow needs of our clients. “Our adaptability has been the key to our success,” says Roberts, pointing out that not having the company’s fortunes tied directly to one narrow equipment category or segment allows Zarpac to bring a more openminded ‘big picture’ mindset to systems integration. Roberts recalls one of the company’s most recent projects involving installation of a turnkey reasealable pouching line comprising multiple pieces of packaging machinery from different OEMs—including a converting machine; a scale feeding system; a horizontal form/fill/seal machine with zipper insert; a bag conditioner; a laner; a checkweigher; a case-erector; a case-packer; a tape sealer; and a case/carton-coder. Despite all the different equipment suppliers involved, Roberts says the project turned out to be a highly successful undertaking—in large part to well-executed FEE (front-end engineering) and FAT (factory acceptance testing) of all the diverse equipment, as well as working in advance with the customer’s product samples to pre-test all the possible risk areas. According to Roberts, the two current prevalent trends in line integration are singleA custom-designed conveyor system taking shape at the Storcan facility in Chateauguay. source responsibility, system for the customer should be why we and opportunities to reduce the overall equipment costs via low-cost sourcing, which are all in this business,” Kucey states.

itself effectively from competing third-party integrators. Yves Dufort, director of food and beverage and vertical consumer packaged goods for the Canadian arm of the U.K.-headquartered Invensys Operations Management (IOM), designer of the popular Wonderware brand of industrial automation and information software products, concurs. “When I look at the future of integration services, I see technologies like wireless, traceability and RFID (radio frequency identification) as being keen contributors to its ongoing development,” says Dufort, pointing to an ever-growing interdependence between the customers’ supply chain optimization needs and packaging line flexibility. “In fact, I look at the greater use of ERP (enterprise resource planning) software, with real-time integration, as being central to where the future of integration is heading in the next few years,” says Dufort, citing Pepsi Bottling Ventures, America Sugar Refining and Mars as some of the company’s star clients and Wonderware system end-users. “Having been involved in the line integration business for over 10 years, continually taking a large role in project implementation with our software system through thirdparty system integrators that we utilize on behalf of our customers, has made us a market leader within the food-and-beverage industry,” says Dufort, adding that IOM’s real-time software platform was designed specifically to enable true end-to-end manufacturing workflow. “It allows our customers to integrate manufacturing processing with IT (information technology) systems,” he explains.“This capability turns their manufacturing operations into a competitive advantage for them, not a liability.” Despite all their respective accomplishments, modern-day system integrators still face numerous technological and competitive challenges. According to Dufort, the fact that a typical packaging line could feature components and devices from two to four different automation suppliers can make it difficult to implement seamless and cohesive production workflow, while Zarpac’s Roberts points out that the clients’ growing need for faster speedContinues on page 22 21

integration job—so you make sure that it gets done right,” says St-Martin, stressing the importance of keeping close tabs on industry trends and associated technologies. “I see the development of new software systems playing a key role in how we go about our integration business, and just because a technology may be new, one should still always examine it with an eye to creating a smoother line for the customer. A control room operator at the Molson Canada brewery in Toronto monitors performance of the plant's high-speed T5 bottling line, which was “In order for a packaging installed as a fully-integrated, turnkey solution by Krones Machinery. line to work harmoniously— to synchronize a project like a to-market creates more pressure not only to get the job done right, but also to have it conductor—we must be able to collect all the data possible from both the client as well done as quickly as possible. “As machinery becomes faster and more as from their equipment, analyze it, create efficient, the level of technological sophisti- the controls needed to execute it to its opcation must steadily increase as well,” adds timumal efficiency, execute the deliverables, Mielke from Krones.“Each machinery man- and do it all within the agreed-upon delivery ufacturer approaches this challenge with their time,” says St-Martin. “It’s very meticulous work, but when it own components, specifications and stanall comes together, it’s beautiful music to dards, but they are often not complementhe customer’s ears.” tary from one manufacturer to another. For Sidel’s Banville, the nurturing of a “It therefore becomes quite a challenge for us, as an integrator, to find a way to put meaningful, mutually beneficial customer it all together efficiently and in the most relationship will remain the cornerstone of successful market strategies for system incost-effective manner.” Adds Storcan’s St-Martin: “We definitely tegrators. “We must understand the customers’ see the market for line integration becoming needs, listen, be flexible, continually commore competitive. “Even though we’ve been a successful and municate the progress of the project and, established force in the industry for a number finally, deliver the performance expected by of years, you are only as good as your last the customer,” states Banville. “Integration is not an easy service to provide, but one should never give up when facing difficulties.” According to Banville, each and every step of the integration process is as important as the next— from choosing the right machinery for maximizing line efficiency to creating optimal line design that facilitates smooth operation with minimal operator assistance— requiring a top-notch project management process. “If we want to be a worldclass integrator, we always have A screen capture image of the Invensys' Wonderware automation software. to be on top of the latest and CANADIAN PACKAGING • JANUARY 2010

best control technologies,” he remarks. “While it’s important to stand behind your product and services, the most important thing is to always be able to deliver what you sold your customer.” Mielke agrees: “I believe it is extremely important to have a clear understanding of what the customer wants and needs and, if possible, understand why we are undertaking the project. “That’s why Krones approaches each project by establishing a budget and a realistic timeline for execution, while also attempting to identify any possible barriers to achieving the end goal,” he says. “Not only does this help build long-term customer relationships, it helps us remain an integration leader.” While Mielke says that the current global economic slump has curtailed many customers’ capital investment plans for complete new turnkey lines, the shifting emphasis on maximizing the performance of their existing capabilities with strategic installations of individual pieces of new machinery will still provide plenty of business for integrators that stay closely attuned to their clients’ needs and available budgets. “Because there is a growing demand for the integration of new machines into existing systems, I expect that the system integration field will continue to grow going forward,” says Mielke, stressing the importance of following a consistent ‘line control philosophy’ in regard to how Krones goes about marrying new machinery and technologies for its clients. “Our service technicians and our trainers can teach our customers how to use it and, based on our successes, we know that we can continue to roll out and fine-tune our approach on a consistent basis, while offering the same excellent end results for our existing and future customers,” Mielke states. “For system integrators, clear communication throughout the process is key to the success of every project.” F O R M O R E I N F O R M AT I O N O N :

l Originally invented as a base material for textured wallpaper, the ubiquitous Bubble Wrap cushioning has celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this year—an occasion celebrated by the protective packaging’s producer Sealed Air Corporation launching a commemorative one-day run at its factory in Saddle River, N.J., during which the clear material produced at the plant was enhanced with a golden-color finish. “We are thrilled to have the golden opportunity to celebrate 50 years of our hallmark brand—the Bubble Wrap,” says Sealed Air president William Hickey. “We are honored to manufacture a product that not only serves to cushion fragile materials, but also provides the added benefit of helping to de-stress and bring smiles to the faces of people of all ages worldwide.” Invented in a home basement by Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding, the BubbleWrap was also marketed as a greenhouse insulating material after the textured wallpaper idea failed to catch on—until finally developing special, proprietary barrier protection which prevented the air from leaking. This development—resulting in the crisp “pop” sound that made the cushioning so famous—ultimately turned Bubble Wrap not only into one of the best-known forms of protective packaging, but also morphed it into something of a pop culture phenomenon, with an estimated two million fans on Facebook currnetly offering their own advice on using this versatile material.“The original inventors could never have guessed that their clever concept for a new packaging material would draw the whole world to that irresistible ‘pop!’ sound,” says Rohn Shellenberger, business manager for Bubble Wrap cushioning. “We’re sure they would both be proud to know what a global icon their invention has become,” he says, noting that Sealed Air produces enough Bubble Wrap each year to stretch to the moon and back. 78

l Plastic packaging product manufacturer Berry Plastics Corporation of Evansville, Ind., has completed its acquisition of all of the common stock of Pliant Corporation, which had emerged from bankruptcy protection toward the end of 2009—announcing that the newly-acquired business will be operated as Berry’s Specialty Film Division, headed by former Pliant chief operating officer David Corey. Says Berry Plastics chief executive Ira Boots: “Pliant brings us an important group of customers, employees, manufacturing locations and products, with its film product line enhancing Berry’s current offering with innovation and broader market appeal, while Berry’s rigid plastic packaging offering will be extended with the addition of Pliant’s flexible packaging. With Berry acquiring Pliant, customers will be better served with a financially strengthened full-service company.” Employing about 2,800 people a 16 manufacturing facilities worldwide, Pliant had revenues of nearly US$900 million for the year ended September 2009. l Dutch-based flexible packaging products conglomerate Clondalkin Group Holdings BV has completed the acquisition of Cleveland Plastic Films, Elyria, Ohiobased manufacturer of flexible plastic films for food, banner and industrial applications—adding to its fast-growing North American portfolio of companies that also includes Direct Plastics of Orangeville, Ont., Accutech Films, Coldwater, Ohio, and Fortune Plastics, which operates multiple production facilities in southern and midwestern U.S. Says Clondalkin’s Group’s chief executive Norbert McDermott: “This is our fourth business acquisition in 24 months in North America, alongside record organic investments in our existing businesses. At a time when many businesses are focused on service reduction and product rationalization, our steady and consistent investment record demonstrates our focus on continuous improvement in our value-added and service propositions to our growing customer base.” l Plastic packaging products manufacturer Pretium Packaging LLC of Chesterfield, Mo., says it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of PVC Container Corporation, the parent of Novapak Corporation, in a cash-for-shares

transaction expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2010.According to Pretium, the proposed merger will create a combined business with over US$240 million in annual revenues, operating 14 manufacturing facilities across the U.S. and Canada. Says Pretium president George Abd: “Both Pretium and Novapak have focused on small- to medium-volume custom bottle applications, with much of their recent growth has coming from PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles. The advantage for both companies’ customers is that while Pretium has invested significantly in one-step, wide-mouth PET technology and assets, Novapak has made significant investment in two-step, narrowneck PET and preform manufacturing. There is also very little overlap between the two companies’ current customers, enabling us to deliver a broader range of products and services to a combined client base of over 500 customers.”

l Rochester, N.Y.-based package converter Hammer Packaging has picked up nine awards at the 35th International Gallery of Superb Printing competition of the International Association of Printing House Craftsmen (IAPHC)—one of the highest honors in the global graphic design and print industry—with shrinksleeve labels accounting for more than half of the awards. “In recent years we have seen how label printing has become high art, as presented by the entries from Hammer,” says IAPHC president Kevin Keane.“World-class brands turn to a world-class purveyor like Hammer to help their product stand out amidst the field. We salute the team at Hammer and congratulate them on their nine International Gallery awards—celebrating their world-class graphic arts prowess.” Hammer’s winning entries include: • Gold – Fruitopia, JoJo Energy and Chadwick Bay Grape Juice; • Silver – Ovaltine, Cell-Nique and

Nika Water;

• Bronze – Snapple Tea; • Honorable Mention – XO Energy and Arctic Power. JANUAry 2010 • CANADIAN PACKAGING
