Private Equity Investing in Packaging Companies
Join us to hear the issues that are top of mind with packaging investors, and bring you facts that can make a difference in your future. You’ll hear how companies are managing their material costs and risks. Commodity prices for materials such as resin have been volatile in recent years, just one issue in the Gulf can drive changes that immediately effect margins. Knowing how to orchestrate your supply chain and your customer relationships is a key to maximizing performance.
We’ll also focus on how to develop and improve your management teams, which is another area investors can immediately add value. Many packaging companies are family-owned businesses where bringing in star performers in the right places can rapidly take you where you want to go.
And we’ll cover the impact of sustainability on the packaging marketplace. While there is no global initiative or national legislation that requires action, there are still state and local regulations -- including outright bans -- that must be dealt with. The reality is that although consumers like sustainable solutions, they don’t like paying for them, so we’ll explain how many packaging companies balance mandates from governments and image conscious retailers with realistic priorities for material substitutions.
