2023 and Beyond: Executive Outlook from Colbert Packaging
Open Letter from Colbert Packaging President and COO, John Lackner
By: Colbert Packaging
Colbert Packaging celebrated a successful 2022, and I'm very proud of our Colbert Packaging team. We've recently implemented capacity improvements, invested in advanced technology, reduced lead times, and generated innovative, sustainable packaging solutions. In alignment with our long-term strategic plan, Colbert Packaging maintained our history of capital investments in smart, new equipment and technologies. In 2022, we announced the initiation and installation of:
We've maintained our certifications in G-7, GMI, AIB, and Global Vision, which further support our processes and quality commitments;
During the past year, we've increased our labor headcount, allowing us to effectively utilize all our assets, and we are now close to full staffing levels at all of our production facilities. Although paperboard supply challenges continue, we have been able to secure increased volume commitments for 2023, due to our valuable, long-standing relationships with our material supply partners.
We consider our environmental and community responsibilities to be key components of our corporate identity. Colbert Packaging is committed to sustainable electrical use through validated wind RECs (Renewable Energy Credits), and we maintain our qualifications with third-party chain of custody validation for the paperboard we source. All paperboard scrap generated through our manufacturing processes is recycled, as we move toward zero manufacturing waste to landfill.
Colbert participates in various community activities, including TICCIT (ticcit.info)
Our active membership in the Paperboard Packaging Council ensures we remain in touch with industry issues, and as a member of the Independent Carton Group, we benefit from group purchasing power, collaborative technical training seminars, and business continuity support.
To our customers and future customers: Most of you are aware of recent industry challenges. In times like this, your expectations and requirements drive our business toward innovation, process improvement, and enhanced capabilities and capacities. You make us better. We truly value your business and your loyalty to Colbert Packaging. We appreciate your flexibility, communication, and collaboration.
All of us at Colbert look forward to strengthening our relationships and collaborating to deliver high-quality, innovative, sustainable fiber-based packaging solutions.
