Times of change often spark periods of reflection – for individuals and businesses alike. That’s been my experience of the past several months as Diversey has become a part of Sealed Air. Assessing the new opportunities ahead of us has reaffirmed my confidence in our essential strengths as an organization and added to my excitement about the new era we have entered. We are stronger than ever and poised to bring even greater levels of service, product innovation and expertise to our customers around the world.

I’d like to share with you some of my thoughts about what these new and exciting times will bring for the new Sealed Air’s Institutional & Laundry (I&L) business and for our customers.

Same passionate experts and trusted brands, new business alignment

Our new company represents the start of a new era of opportunity for our customers.

We will offer  further innovation, a broader array of trusted brands and deeper expertise to our customers as well as high quality products with excellent service. The I&L business unit of Sealed Air is a global integrated supplier that manufactures and distributes chemicals, tools and utensils, machines, and training and consulting services for the Institutional and Laundry sectors. We continue to deliver solutions in building care, food safety, laundry and infection control for our broad customer base in sectors such as:

  • Building Service Contractors and Facility Management
  • Retail
  • Food Service
  • Hospitality
  • Health Care

Sustainability is our passion

Businesses around the world continue  to recognize sustainability as a competitive advantage and are doubling efforts in establishing sustainability strategies and practices, much in the same way Sealed Air has done for its own business.

Here at Sealed Air, our main priority is to create solutions that enhance sustainability – by improving our customers’ profits through reduced operational costs associated with energy and water conservation, and through waste reduction, regulatory and legal compliance, positive labor relations, and a healthy and safe workforce.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to sustainability. Our commitment is to help customers choose the right options for their needs – cleaning and hygiene solutions that help safeguard human health and improve our customers’ operations while reducing waste and saving energy and water. In everything we do, our customers count on our expertise and our commitment to partnerships just as much as they rely on our superior products and tools.

Partnering with our customers

In nearly 20 years working among and leading Diversey’s people, I have been impressed time and again by their genuine desire to fully understand and meet customer needs. Our people work within a rich legacy of more than two centuries of trusted brands paired with industry leadership. We are able to deliver the highest Value creation for our customers being the best at Problem solving and Solutions delivery.

We create Value through:

1. Innovative products, applications and solutions delivering Operational Efficiency and lower total costs to our customers

2. Risk Management programs focused on Labor Safety,  Food Safety and Infection Control

3. Differentiated sustainable solutions

In the coming weeks and months, my colleagues and I will use this blog to share resources, ideas, best practices, innovations, sustainability news and commentaries on trends in the industry. We invite you to join us. Ask questions and let us know what you think, and which topics you’d like us to address.
