Henkel Named Independent Carton Group Supplier of the Year
The Independent Carton Group (ICG), an association of 19 independently owned and operated folding carton manufacturers, is pleased to announce that Henkel is the recipient of its Supplier of the Year Award for 2014.
“Every ICG member has unique needs, and it has always been a pleasure to work closely with each one to understand their company’s goals and challenges, and customize solutions that deliver value,” said Joseph Wrona, regional sales director for Henkel. “The ICG consists of a dynamic group of companies and a wonderful group of people. We’re thrilled to know they think so highly of us, too.”
The ICG currently maintains contracts with more than 40 reputable suppliers of paperboard, printing plates, inks, adhesives, rollers, presses and more. Henkel, the largest producer of adhesives technologies in the world, supplies ICG members with adhesives, sealants and functional coatings for folding cartons, cases, corrugated boxes, labels, board lamination, packaging windows, and other packaging and packaging features.
The Supplier of the Year Award has been presented annually since 2012 to the ICG supplier that receives the highest marks on performance evaluations completed by ICG members for the prior calendar year. Members rate suppliers on product and service quality, delivery timeliness, invoicing accuracy, personnel expertise, and other key performance metrics.
“Henkel has all of the traits we look for in our suppliers: quality products, competitive pricing, personal service and flexibility,” said Jay Willie, executive director of the ICG. “Our members require many types of adhesives for use on many types of substrates. Henkel is not only able to adapt specific products to members’ specific applications, but their size and global reach also help to ensure that our members can get any adhesive they need at the best possible price.”
