GCS AT THE PLASTIC CLOSURE INNOVATIONS CONFERENCE 2015

GLOBAL CLOSURE SYSTEMS AT THE PLASTIC CLOSURE INNOVATIONS CONFERENCE 2015


June 2, 2015

Nicholas Thorne, VP Research and Development for Global Closure Systems (GCS), will present the “sustainability approach for the caps & closures” at the third Plastic Closure Innovations conference – on day two – June 11th – in Berlin.

 

In the current climate of environmental awareness, packaging suffers from a very negative image. Despite its negative image, the caps and closure industry has, over the last decade, significantly and pro-actively reduced its carbon footprint and risen to the sustainability challenge.

 

As sustainability is not just environment, Nicholas Thorne will demonstrate how to find the best solution to fit the consumer and brand expectations by providing eco-conception and manufacturing excellence.

Educated in the UK and holder of a PhD in material science, Nicholas Thorne began his career in the Pechiney Group over 25 years ago. From upstream packaging research he became Director of R & D for the Flexible Packaging Division in Europe, and then Global Director of Innovation and Development for the Cosmetic and Beauty packaging that later became Albéa. In 2011 he joined Global Closure Systems as VP R&D with global responsibility for innovation, product development and engineering.

 

Throughout his career he has strived to create the necessary connections between technology, design, materials expertise and real consumer and market derived needs in order to provide added value solutions to customers and consumers alike.
