Global Packaging Alliance Holds Annual Meeting in Japan
Rochester, NY Rochester NY Region
Rochester, NY – The Global Packaging Alliance (GPA) held its annual meeting in Nagoya, Japan during the week of January 23, 2006. With members convening from all over the world, the yearly event was a much-anticipated chance to discuss strategies and goals, and provided an opportunity for alliance members to evaluate potential partnerships to supply the world’s second-largest economy.

The meeting opened with a full agenda dedicated to expanding GPA’s global presence. Among the topics addressed were: packaging trends, technical developments, investments, and benchmarking productivity measures.

GPA members visited several facilities in Osaka and Tokyo to assess which companies best complement the GPA’s current network in terms of management philosophy, technical capabilities, and markets served. The meeting also provided an opportunity to evaluate the latest in packaging technology.

“Japan faces similar economic challenges as the rest of the industrialized world,” said Harry Voss, Chairman of Diamond Packaging. “A strength of Japanese businesses is their ability to successfully combine the latest technology with innovation to maintain a strategic advantage in light of the lower labor rates of other economies.”
