Published March 20, 2014
Henkel, a worldwide leader in consumer and industrial businesses, and CMS Technology, a solutions provider for the food, packaging, and materials industries, have announced their intention to pursue a strategic North America alliance to develop food-safe additives for packaging, the companies announced recently. Henkel's leadership position in packaging adhesives will be enhanced by CMS microbial-resistant technology for paper and plastic packaging.

"Henkel is focused on delivering the assurance of quality to consumers. This commitment extends beyond adhesives to the whole package. Our relationship with CMS is one of several steps we are taking to provide a holistic packaging solution for our customers," said Dietrich Crail, Henkel's Vice President of Paper Converting, Graphic Arts and Construction.

"CMS utilizes environmentally safe technology which curbs harmful bacteria and lowers packaging costs, so we are excited to be working with them," added Kris Getty, Henkel's Director of Global Business Development for Multi-Functional Adhesives. "Innovative, sustainable solutions are at the core of what we do." The Henkel-CMS Technology alliance will develop packaging solutions designed to ensure to the maximum extent possible that food is kept safe from harmful bacteria. The application will impact first-use and recycled material.

"Our relationship with Henkel, a leader in innovation and sustainability, brings CMS Technology to consumers," said John Meccia, President and CEO of CMS Technology Inc. "Our mission is to provide cost-effective solutions that keep the food we eat fresher using safe, eco-friendly ingredients."
