Aug. 16, 2021 - Amcor today announced plans to build two new state-of-the-art innovation centers. The new facilities in Ghent, Belgium, and Jiangyin, China, will welcome customers as of mid-2022, with full build-out over the next two years.
The total investment is expected to be approximately $35 million.
The new centers expand the global reach of Amcor's innovation network, which currently includes flagship sites such as Neenah, Wisconsin, and Manchester, Michigan, in the US, as well as smaller sites around the world. The broader network will allow customers globally to tap into the company's deep material science expertise and packaging development capabilities.
The centers announced today will include differentiating features that are in high demand from customers:
"Our innovation and design centers offer customers a unique space to test new ideas and technologies across a variety of materials and formats without disrupting commercial operations," said William Jackson, Chief Technology Officer for Amcor's Flexibles business. "Our customers will be able to access our innovation capabilities wherever they are in the world and benefit from a seamless transfer of expertise and knowledge across the network."
Amcor is a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging for food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, home and personal-care, and other products. The company is focused on making packaging that uses less materials, is increasingly recyclable and reusable, and is made with more recycled content. To learn more, visit: www.amcor.com.
