DS Smith Continues Expansion in North AmericaJune 19, 2019
DS Smith announces its further expansion in North America with the opening of its new headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. Its growth into the North American market follows its acquisition of Interstate Resources and Corrugated Container Corporation, and The Display Connection.
The company’s momentum and leadership in environmental and sustainability stewardship in Europe offers a launchpad for its expansion in North America, and comes at a time when consumers seek more options for sustainable packaging.
DS Smith’s closed-loop recycling model – where paper and corrugated is collected, recycled and then used again to make packaging materials – has proven successful in Europe, helping the company to manage more than 5 million tons of recyclable materials every year. The company’s expansion into North America is a response to global and local customer requests for similar sustainable packaging solutions in North America.
“We’ve always thrived on finding innovative ways to help customers achieve more for less – sell more, reduce costs, manage risk and complexity in their supply chain,” said Miles Roberts, Global CEO of DS Smith. “For years, we’ve helped companies across industries—from pharma and consumer packaged goods to retail and e-commerce—to redefine packaging across the world, and this expansion marks a key milestone in our journey to bring our innovative business model to the U.S.”
