October 11, 2022 (press release) –

Amcor has invested in the expansion of our Sligo (Ireland) healthcare packaging facility, adding thermoforming capabilities in Europe. This new capability in Europe builds on years of experience in North America, where our thermoformed trays have won multiple packaging innovation awards.

Winning collaboration

When we collaborate with our healthcare customers on a thermoformed trays project, you can count on an unrivalled concept-to-market partnership that leverages our packaging engineering expertise.

During the product development process, from day one to delivery, our customers receive full visibility and can interact with our team at every step in the journey. To help streamline the design and development process, your own packaging team will be in direct contact with Amcor’s design and project engineers.

The journey starts with an initial technical briefing to understand your packaging challenges deeply, whether those are sterility, transit resistance, performance in situ, improving sustainability attributes, or reducing total cost of ownership. We can produce 3D printed design concepts to minimize steel tooling iterations and can apply comprehensive digital and physical testing services to ensure that your packaging is optimized and fit for purpose.

A Partner in Sustainability

Amcor is committed to finding more sustainable packaging solutions. Our thermoformed trays offering includes more sustainable options to support you on your sustainability journey.

To help you achieve your packaging sustainability goals, ASSET™ provides you with a rigorous life-cycle assessment to compare the environmental impact of different packaging options and configurations. An ASSET™ assessment starts with the source of raw materials, factors in the energy used to transform them, water consumption, emissions into the environment, transport, and the packaging's end-of-use.

Certified by the Carbon Trust, our ASSET™ model identifies opportunities for improving environmental performance and helps you make informed, fact-based decisions.

Global, Local, Amcor

With thermoformed tray capabilities now in Europe, you can access a global network of state-of-the-art thermoforming facilities and best-in-class design capabilities, with 20+ years of award-winning innovations.

Our global healthcare manufacturing footprint, unmatched material science expertise, and know-how across the entire healthcare value chain, will provide bespoke packaging solutions to suit you.
