CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As an industry leader in sustainable packaging solutions and systems, Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE: SEE) is proud to play a role in providing the essential packaging solutions needed to help customers in the fight against COVID-19.
Sealed Air provides customers with packaging solutions including custom-fabricated shipping boxes, and automated packaging and bagging systems that enable the distribution of medical equipment, face coverings, and test kits. Sealed Air is also supporting vaccine distribution and administration by offering a complete range of temperature assurance materials that can be used in packaging vials that require a cold supply chain, including during the critical last mile of delivery.
Sealed Air is introducing a new innovation called SEALED AIR© brand TemPreserve KF that will reduce total cost of ownership and bring additional sustainability benefits. TemPreserve KF is a customizable thermal polyurethane packaging that, along with a coolant, helps maintain required temperatures (ultra-cold, cold or hot) for the specific length of time needed during transit.
“We are proud to offer customers a full suite of packaging solutions as they prioritize getting the right equipment, test kits, and vaccines to the world’s population as quickly and safely as possible,” said Sergio Pupkin, Sealed Air’s Chief Growth and Strategy officer.
