We Can See the Future – No Really!

Believe it or not, being in the packaging business is a lot like being an economist. We analyze consumer trends, we dissect the microeconomics of growth markets, and we track even the tiniest shifts in labor statistics or fuel availability in countries around the world.


Because we need to be ready for whatever comes next. Ready to be the conduit, the conductor, the conveyor of whatever commerce the world requires.

We need to be able to see into the future and be there when it arrives.

These are just a few of the ahead-of-their-time innovations that we will be introducing to the consumer retail, logistics, manufacturing, transportation, and electronics industries over the next 12 months. If you’re thinking that feels like an awfully long time to wait, we agree. That’s why we’re giving you a peek inside our crystal ball much much sooner. Right now, our unparalleled teams of packaging engineers, material scientists, and digital experts are working swiftly and intensely to perfect technology that will usher in new eras of efficiency, sustainability, and data intelligence. They’re creating boxes that aren’t boxes at all. Systems smart enough to read and recognize each order individually and customize packaging to fit them instantaneously. Apps that improve labor productivity. Bubble Wrap that can be made on the spot.

On November 6-9, we’ll be sending attendees of Pack Expo International on a journey into the future to experience the trends and technology of tomorrow that will ignite change in all our industries. Innovations in fulfillment speed, brand enhancement, product protection – even innovations in air itself. It will all be on display in Chicago for the public to hear, see, touch and – yes – even smell.

The future is here. We can already see it. And we can’t wait to share that vision with you.
