The new era of packaging has begun. The speed is accelerating and the demands are growing. Sustainability is today’s trend but already tomorrow’s requirement. Recycling targets, recyclability requirements, the use of recycled or biobased raw materials create challenges and opportunities to every Research and Development department throughout the packaging industry. The market is demanding more customized products and the product life cycles are getting shorter. In addition, the packaging machines are getting faster and more efficient, creating increased requirements for the packaging materials. The consumers and their behavior is constantly changing and they are getting increasingly more aware of the environmental aspects of both the products and the packaging.


At Amerplast, our customers are at the centre of everything we do. We are growing together with our customers and ensuring our joint success today and in the future. The world of consumer goods and packaging is getting more complex, and to succeed, people throughout the value chain need to stay on top of the game with the latest knowledge about the industry, changing markets, consumer trends and the business environment. Amerplast is a market leader in carrier bags in Finland and one of Europe’s largest bread bag converters. We are forerunners in sustainable flexible packaging and circular economy packaging solutions. We have industry experts working in our production and processes in, for example, the in-house R&D and repro departments. We have a lot of knowledge we are now going to share with you via our renewed website.


The renewed website has been designed to answer to our customers’ and other interest groups’ needs for information, inspiration and market insights. We have created a visually attractive and user friendly hub for, not only Amerplast product and company information, but also for market trends, insights and inspirational tutorials. Our new blog will cover market news, case studies, expert interviews and much more. We are the experts when it comes to flexible packaging, production possibilities, EU level plastic and packaging legislation and sustainable packaging solutions. This knowledge and know-how we will share with our web page visitors and in our social media channels. Follow Amerplast and engage with us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
