Amcor Limited, $9 Billion+ Global Packaging Leader with 200 Operations in Over 40+ Countries Achieves Idealliance G7® Master Facility Qualification
Amcor Group GmbH Qualifies G7® Master on Offset and Rotogravure
Alexandria, VA (February 7, 2019) – Idealliance, working closely with Amcor Group GmbH and one of their closest packaging customers during a G7® Training and Master Qualification in Rinteln, Germany masterfully performed in achieving G7 Master Qualification on offset and rotogravure as well as training staff from across Europe as G7 Experts. Amcor Limited is one of the largest packaging service providers in the world serving some of the largest brands in the world, utilizing a multitude of printing processes across the world. “Working with Jens Pilzecker and the amazing staff at Amcor from across Europe was a wonderful experience. Amcor is a world-class company. In the Amcor offices and manufacturing facilities they have the Amcor values all over the place-on the walls, computer screen savers and signs, which is called the Amcor Way, as reminders of who they are and what they stand for. What struck me the most, is that a company of this size truly acting out their values in everything they do and in with every person we encountered throughout Amcor. You could feel that this organization’s values, discipline, principles and pride in their work are woven into every employee. Their kindness was incredible, so was their knowledge. Working with their design group, pre-press, plate-making, cylinder manufacturing, standards, and operations team is the core value of bringing everyone together to “speak the same color language”. With everyone in the same room, talking about the production of a product start to finish in order to achieve the brand quality requirements set before them allowed everyone to see the important roles each plays in the production process. Every night we stayed late because Amcor is driven by flawless execution, curiosity in learning, and attention to detail, which are all extremely important in the value of education and innovation, which go hand-in-hand in driving organizations.” said Idealliance CEO Tim Baechle.
