SONOCO is the world's largest diversified packaging company. Founded in 1899, the company has approximately 19,000 employees in over 300 operations across 34 countries. Its products include consumer thermoformed plastic packaging, rigid paperboard containers, paper can packaging, convenience closures, and more. The global packaging leader is committed to sustainability and supports environmental protection efforts. Its goal is to reduce the environmental footprint of the product industry. This commitment has led to a focus on environmentally friendly materials and processes, and a commitment to environmental protection and recycling. In June 2017, Sonoco purchased the paper cans packaging business of Ball Metalpack. The acquisition will add to the company's growing consumer packaging division. As the world's largest aerosol producer, Ball Metalpack has approximately $180 million in net present value. Founded in 1989, Can Packaging currently employs more than 60 people in France, and is the largest independent producer of aerosols in North America.
SONOCO Paper cans Packaging supplier has a long-standing history in the paper can industry. Its operations span France's Canands region, as well as an advanced research and development center for packaging machinery. The company also produces protective clamshells and tube systems for major consumer brands in Europe. Its leadership in sustainability will continue through George and Guillaume Sireix. The companies are expected to maintain the same level of innovation and customer service as before the acquisition.
The company has grown organically and sustainably. Its two paper can manufacturing facilities in France operate in a sustainable manner. Its research and development center focuses on new products and services. The firm is the largest paper can manufacturer in North America. With more than 60 employees, the acquisition is a win-win situation for the company and for consumers. The combined companies will benefit from the expertise of both. The partnership is beneficial for both parties
