Detpak Group General Manager of Sales Daniel Cross said the NRAS was the perfect opportunity to showcase the Detmold brand and strengthen the company’s standing in the North American market.

“Detpak now has in place a dedicated North American support team, backed by a global production network with owned manufacturing in seven countries, assuring supply,” said Mr Cross.

“Our innovative, custom solutions through LaunchpadTM – Detpak’s specialist in-house packaging design agency and R&D lab, means we can deliver a range of the highest-quality products to meet design and function needs and manufacturing standards in an evolving regulatory market,” he said.

“With Detpak’s dedicated sustainability experts, we can drive the industry into the future through sustainable, compostable or recyclable solutions for every packaging need.”
