Sealed Air Corporation has entered a strategic partnership with Box on Demand and Panotec, providers of 3-dimensional equipment platforms and fanfold corrugated for on-demand, right-sized box creation. Box On Demand is the exclusive North American partner of Panotec, the manufacturer of the equipment platforms, established in 1986 and headquartered in Treviso, Italy. “This partnership further strengthens our leading portfolio of right-sized solutions,” said Kenneth P. Chrisman, President of Sealed Air’s Product Care Division. “The capabilities of Box On Demand are a powerful complement to the automated system technology pioneered by B+ Equipment - including I-PackⓇ, e-CubeⓇ, and UltipackⓇ - which became a part of the Sealed Air family in 2015, as well as our own internally developed platforms including the FloWrap™ Automated Mailer and PriorityPakⓇ.”
The Covington Paperworkers Union says they have ratified the WestRock offer after a vote Thursday. This means that the union has agreed on a new contract that was presented by union representatives for the papermill’s workers.
94 percent of the eligible members voted, with 54 percent in favor for the new contract.
No further negotiations will take place.
It is the first new contract offered to WestRock workers in Covington since 2010.
