CHICAGO, IL – April 24, 2018 – Leaders across the packaging industry and members of the investment community came together to discuss the “Future of Packaging”, a one-day summit hosted by L.E.K. Consulting and market research firm, Smithers Pira.

Charter NEX CEO, Kathy Bolhous, had an opportunity to speak on a panel focused on assessing the impact of key trends across the packaging sector and their impact on investment opportunities. One of the major themes of the event was the significant consolidation ongoing across the packaging industry even as multiples reach pre-recession levels.

In response to a question about the importance and benefits of scale across the packaging sector, Kathy said, “One of the key elements to our success is our laser focus on making the highest quality film in the industry. Although many of our peers have pursued an acquisition strategy that includes vertical integration, we believe our commitment to making great film and becoming a partner to our converters has been and will continue to be a key element of our success story moving forward.”

The overall tone of the conference was quite bullish on packaging as a sector ripe for continued investment as technology and e-commerce continue to shape purchasing behavior.
