What do you like most about working for the IMG Group, and how would you describe the company culture?

I like the fact that we are family owned and not a large corporation. The ability to speak with ownership on a regular basis and make quick decisions is refreshing. Their high investment in growing the business is also comforting for long-term employment growth.

From a sustainability perspective, how have you seen the IMG Group evolve?

We have come a long way over the years and our marketing group has done a fantastic job capturing everything we have achieved. It’s not just our products, but also how we operate as an organization and do our part to make a difference. Recycling has been something we’ve been doing for years, and it’s now become a big part of our value proposition. Our experience in areas such as PET recycling and chemical recycling will make a difference.  

What is one thing you want people to know about our industry?

Our industry is one that I think is under appreciated, overlooked, and misunderstood much of the time. Without proper packaging, our lives would be very different. Plastics get a bad name in the media because people receive incorrect information, and they make false assumptions about products such as ours. The problem is not plastic, it’s people! If everyone did their part, the world would be a better place.

What would you like to see Evertis accomplish within the upcoming years?

I would like to see Evertis grow and build our brand. Investments are being made and we must execute to achieve our growth objectives, but we must also build our brand name. We are not a well-known entity in North America, but that will change. Customers and prospects will recognize the value we bring as we become a standard name in the industry. Our service and our people set us apart. We have an excellent team, and we cater to our customers’ needs. I don’t think anyone can compare with our ability to react when customers need us!

How do you think Evertis can best meet customers' needs when it comes to sustainability and recycled content requirements, and how are they working towards that?

We have some excellent products today that include PCR content to help our customers meet the goals and objectives of many large consumer food companies. That said, we must continue to work towards new products that provide better options vs. our competitors. A barrier film that can be recycled would be the holy grail everyone is looking for. With our depth of knowledge and being a resin producer, I believe we will achieve this in the next year.
