PCH International today announced the expansion of its sustainable packaging design services with the opening of a Sustainable Packaging Design Centre of Excellence.
PCH Sustainable Packaging Design Centre of Excellence will open a material library, a structural design engineering and quality test lab based in Shenzhen, China.
“PCH works with the world’s best brands and start-ups. We know that beautiful packaging can entice people to purchase a product, and our aim is to offer consumers the most impressive out-of-box experience.
PCH is now designing solutions to ensure this packaging is 100% sustainable, with minimal carbon footprint and a full Life Cycle Assessment,” said PCH founder and CEO Liam Casey. “We look at the entire packaging life cycle and how to make it completely environmentally friendly: from material sourcing, to packaging design, manufacturing, transport, and final disposal.”
A product showroom and material library will be opened in San Francisco early in 2013. Up to 20 new jobs will be created in the next 6-12 months in diverse roles including project managers, material expert supply base managers, lab operators, print supplier management specialists and green practice experts.
