It is an exciting time to be offered this opportunity with major investments in sophisticated barrier films, expansion in Australia and elsewhere underway, as well as many other exciting projects to deliver enhanced product and service solutions for our customers. I am looking forward to meeting our key customers and suppliers and of course the LINPAC team over the next few weeks and months.
“My initial focus is to continue our record HSHE performance of recent years and to further enhance the long-term strategy of the business to deliver growth, improved competitiveness and attractive financial returns for our investors.”
