Selig Group, owned by CC Industries (“CCI”), announced today that it has acquired Manufacture Générale de Joints (“MGJ”). Founded in 1947 and headquartered near Lyon, France, MGJ is a leading supplier of foam-based liners worldwide.
Induction heat sealing has been around as a packaging sealing method for over 70 years. However, with the seismic shift to online purchasing driving induction heat sealing growth and environmental pressures increasing demand for simpler mono-materials, liner design is set to change again.
With the focus squarely on plastic packaging waste reduction, Selig Flexibles is working with clients to offer them more recyclable flexible packaging solutions. The company’s 84% recyclable flexible plastic packaging offering is being trialed in companies across Europe at present.
The UK Government published its policy paper on the introduction of the Plastic Packaging Tax in November. The tax aims to provide economic incentive to businesses to use recycled materials in the production of their plastics packaging.
Selig is placing a priority on customers getting the right seal, every time, with the launch of the company’s new website – www.seligsealing.com. The website includes a detailed liner selection guide, a new online personalized datasheet library, and an easy-to-use product gallery.
