The label and packaging manufacturer Avery Dennison recently recognised Munich-based chemical company WACKER and a number of other pressure-sensitive industry suppliers at its second annual supplier awards ceremony in Oegstgeest, Netherlands. WACKER and the Swedish specialty paper manufacturer MunksjÂ´ were awarded in the category, Â´Best Supplier SustainabilityÂ´ for their joint efforts in the development of a low-platinum solution for silicone release liners. The silicone coating ensures that self-adhesive labels can easily be removed.
At this yearÂ´s award ceremony, Avery Dennison honoured a total of nine suppliers. The selection was based on the supplierÂ´s performance in areas such as sustainability, innovation, service, overall value and quality. The Best Supplier Sustainability award went to WACKER and MunksjÂ´. Both companies demonstrated leadership and action to align with Avery DennisonÂ´s sustainability policy. It demands the use of responsibly sourced materials, compliance with third-party verification processes and a clear commitment to innovation and continuous improvement.
Over the past 20 years, WACKER has developed into a leading supplier for the US label manufacturer. Â´We Â´ and IÂ´m including the entire business team in this Â´ are delighted with this award,Â´ said WACKER Executive Board member Auguste Willems at the award ceremony. Â´The Avery Dennison award shows that sustainability is playing an increasingly important role for our customers. By consistently developing our DEHESIVEÂ® silicones further, we have succeeded in continuously improving the sustainability and cost efficiency of release coating formulations,Â´ said Willems. Â´ThatÂ´s why we see this award as an incentive to develop solutions for our customers that meet growing market requirements and set standards in terms of efficiency and sustainability.Â´
