Closing the loop on sustainable packaging
16 February 2021
WITH SITES in Ashbourne, Dublin, Warrenpoint and Lurgan, Saica Pack has established itself as one of the largest producers of corrugated packaging in Ireland. The company has achieved this feat whilst maintaining a commitment towards promoting sustainability and the environment; a value which is at the heart of all its operations.
Founded in 2008, Saica Pack Ireland employs more than 250 highly skilled staff members across its three sites, and the corrugated packaging specialists work alongside a broad range of clients from a variety of sectors including Agriculture, Food & Beverage, Healthcare and General Manufacturing.
Saica Pack Ireland maintains its commitment to the environment with the majority of its paper used to produce corrugated packaging made from recycled materials, most of which is recovered from retail and public waste streams through Saica Natur.
Michael Shaw, Saica Ireland regional sales director, said: “After years of hard work and internal investment, Saica Pack Ireland is leading the way in the sustainable production of packaging materials for the national market. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and this underpins our production process from start-to-finish.
“In the past three years, we have strategically spent over 40m in our Irish business, upgrading machinery, employing an experienced workforce and ensuring we put the environment first. I’m proud of the actions Saica Pack has taken to establish itself as one of Europe’s most environmentally friendly packaging producers, but this is not enough. We are committed to going further and faster to promote sustainability.”
“As Saica Pack Ireland, we are committed to closing the loop with an End to End process and increasingly opening up more opportunities for sustainable solutions.”
The company refrains from using heavy fuel in the manufacturing process, and the division is working with customers both nationally and locally to ensure production is efficient, environmentally friendly and of the very highest quality.
Saica Pack Ireland recently launched its End to End: Cost of Ownership tool, a revolutionary application which provides customers with a detailed analysis of each cost incurred during production, and how they affect each element of the value chain. In turn, this has streamlined the production process and significantly improved the sustainability of their packaging solutions.
The company has also embraced its Solutions Catalogue, which showcases their extensive array of packaging designs and innovations on a digital, easy-to-use application.
