Amcor reaches major company milestone since Bemis acquisition

Amcor to be able to offer CR27TM heat seal coating technology unrestricted to healthcare customers in Europe


11 August 2021, Zurich, Switzerland: Amcor, a global leader in packaging, today announced that it has achieved a milestone in healthcare packaging since the acquisition of Bemis Company Inc on 11 June 2019. By adapting its approach to product development and innovation, and deploying know-how and processes gained in the acquisition, Amcor can now provide unrestricted to customers in Europe key healthcare packaging solutions that were part of the Bemis® portfolio. This strengthens Amcor’s comprehensive portfolio of healthcare products and services worldwide.


“We have been on an exciting new journey in the last two years where we have learnt from our Bemis colleagues in North America,” said Mark Laycock, Sales Director Medical at Amcor. “Adapting from Bemis capabilities, we are now able to offer key packaging solutions and services to healthcare customers in Europe, providing them with access to our broader portfolio and global support to their Business Continuity Planning.”


Amcor has long-standing experience with high-quality, heat sealing adhesives for medical grade papers and Tyvek material. Adding to that is the well-known, high performance Tyvek adhesive and the CR27TM heat seal coating technology developed by Bemis, which will now be available in Europe for the first time under the Amcor brand and will be produced in Winterbourne, UK.

Amcor’s customers, including medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical customers, will be offered to experience the benefits of CR27 TM heat seal coating technology for medical, sterile barrier applications. The CR27 TM is the industry standard for reliable heat seal coating technology; it delivers enhanced strength and excellent porosity – without compromising on barrier properties – it is also air permeable and suitable for ETO and gamma irradiation sterilization.
