20 January 2020

The Global Premedia Network (GPN) is proud to announce South African Polyflex (Pty) Ltd and Brazilian Clicheria Blumenau Ltd, as the two new members joining its international ranks. The GPN, which already consists of several independent and strategically connected companies, aims to establish mutually beneficial collaboration between all partners in order to provide superior packaging premedia services for their FMCG clients worldwide.

“It is a true pleasure to announce that such technically advanced and experienced partners are joining our alliance,” stated CSW’s CEO, Laura Wright. “Our combined experiences and resources allow the GPN to deliver an unprecedented level of service to our current and future customers,” she added.

“We are choosing partners who are not just leaders within their geographic areas but also share our deep commitment to ensure that our mutual clients have access to the most efficient, cost-effective and comprehensive solutions, regardless of where in the world they are producing their packaging,” said Kai Lankinen, MARVACO’s Chairman.

Brett Pollock, Polyflex Managing Director states, “We are honored and excited to be a partner in this global initiative. Our multiple manufacturing locations across the African continent and long-standing position as an innovative leader will help GPN’s clients to extend their reach into this world's fastest-growing economies. This is also a great opportunity for all of us to share our knowledge and leverage the synergies of our businesses.”

“International brands need more attention to their packaging development due to the complexities of multiple cultures, languages, legal systems and packaging regulations,” noted Marek Skrzynski, CSW’s Technical Director. “As a global network of well-aligned partners, we have a unique vantage point from which to identify and provide the most advanced, end-to-end solutions to our clients, bridging the communication gap and successfully transcending technical, geographic and cultural boundaries.”

“In addition to state-of-the-art technology, we also possess the unique knowledge of who-is-who in the South American packaging market and how to position international FMCGs to be successful here. We can help brand owners to meet the challenges associated with preserving their brand consistency, reduce the development cycle and the associated time to market,” said Volnei Antonio Alves de Oliveira, the CEO of the Clicheria Blumenau Ltd.

“After all, who else could deliver such passion and professionalism to meet the packaging challenges of international brands, if not a globally coordinated, technically-aligned and locally rooted network of dedicated premedia providers,” echoed Kai Lankinen.
