The Swiss-based packaging company, Amcor, has announced its plan to invest $35 million in two innovation centres in Belgium and China.
The company, which already owns two main sites in the US, stated that the new facilities will contribute to expand Amcor’s global network and improve its packaging development abilities. The characteristics of the sites will present immersive customer and consumer experience, advanced analytical, material science laboratories, and pilot lines for products.
Chief technology officer for Amcor’s Flexibles business, William Jackson, said: “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 chief technology officer for Amcor’s Flexibles business, William Jackson. “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”.
The construction is said to be concluded in 2023 and customers will be welcomed from mid-2022.
