Plastics & Packaging Exhibits as ONE DS Smith at Automechanika

The DS Smith UK divisions of corrugated packaging, Plastics Extruded and Foam Product segments, along with Packaging services, will be exhibiting together as One DS Smith at Automechanika exhibit June 6-8, 2017. The exhibit will be held this year at the NEC Birmingham (UK). Automechanika, is the UK's leading event for the Automotive Aftermarket and Supply Chain Industry.

The Automotive Industry sector is for a key sector for DS Smith. In the past few years, DS Smith’s automotive clients have grown faster than many other sectors and continue to offer significant growth potential, especially for our added value products & services. As a true partner to the global automotive industry, we will be exhibiting our full range of multi-material packaging and component solutions on stand 6C40 in the Supply Chain Hall (hall 6).

Chay Ankers, a Strategic Account Manager at DS Smith, will also be holding a seminar to discuss “The Global Packaging Logistics Supply Chain” at 12pm, 6th June in the Supply Chain Seminar Theatre.

Peter Foot, Marketing & Innovation Director of the Heavy Duty Division in our packaging division said, “We formed a cross divisional team in 2016 to create a new Automotive website, showcasing the complete DS Smith offering to the global automotive sector, combining the value proposition of Plastics Extruded and Foam Products, Recycling, Packaging Services & Componentry.

DS Smith automotive customers now have a single point to access all DS Smith solutions. In the UK we’ve taken that one step further and collaborated to exhibit at Automechanika. That process has also been positive in developing our company network and I’m confident that benefits will continue in the months and years following the event while maintaining & building upon our market leading status in the automotive sector.”
