Peterson is a leading packaging manufacturer in Scandinavia. In order to promote the growth after the recent acquisition, Peterson initiated an investment program of approximately Euro 25 million.
Shortly after the recent acquisition, the extensive investment plan was initiated this spring to modernize the facilities in Norrköping, Bäckefors, Randers and Sarpsborg. An operation that will continue throughout 2017. The ongoing investments focus on the entire Scandinavian market.
In addition, Peterson recently acquired the highest level of BRC certification (BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials) for the production facilities in Norrköping, Sweden, and Randers, Denmark, as the first corrugated packaging manufacturer in Scandinavia. The BRC certification means that Peterson is able to meet the extensive requirements for the production, storage and distribution of packaging for food and pharmaceutical products.
Peterson is an independant Scandinavian business unit, owned by VPK Packaging Group and Klingele, two family held packaging manufacturers, sharing both a long term company vision and a long business track in sustainable packaging.
