Kevin Baudhuin has been president of Pregis’ North American protective packaging business since 2007.

He has now been promoted to president of global protective packaging where he will lead Pregis Protective Packaging Europe.

Baudhuin said the firm aimed to create a broad environmentally friendly product portfolio suitable for a number of markets, including medical and pharmaceutical products.

The company already offers its Superlite poly Mailer and EP-Flex Renew biodegradable film products.

‘We recognise that any sustainable solution must still meet other key requirements such as high performance and cost-effectiveness and we will therefore ensure that our products continue to satisfy all these criteria,’ said Baudhuin.

He added that the firm’s growth strategy would focus on three main areas of sustainability, innovation and customer partnerships.
