i2r Packaging Solutions targets US market growth

Strategic investments, impressive growth in capacity over the past 12 months and ongoing market penetration, particularly overseas, has resulted in i2r Packaging Solutions increasing its global offering by establishing a presence in the US.

In developing the operation, i2r has also recruited a national sales manager, Dave Cobb, to oversee their interests. Cobb joins i2r from a similar account management role in the aluminium industry.

Commenting on his new role, Cobb said: “i2r is a rapidly expanding business with a fresh and unique take on the packaging market. Their innovation and ability to pivot in new directions seems to be unmatched.

“The North American market will undoubtedly present us with a range of opportunities, which I look forward to pursuing.”

Being part of the Italian Laminazione Sottile Group, a leading global supplier of aluminium products, i2r was awarded with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade, earlier in the year.

Being one of only 220 UK organisations to win an Queen’s Award in 2020, the company was recognised for its excellence in international trade, which has seen the firm return outstanding year on year growth in the last three years.

Endorsed by the Prime Minister and approved by Her Majesty The Queen, the achievement is the highest official UK award for British businesses,

i2r last expanded its international operation in 2017 with an investment in South Korea. Following their ongoing success in Asia and likely opportunities in the US, the firm has not ruled out more investments to further enhance their overseas operations.

“The US is an important part of our international strategy and business expansion plans. Our key goals, objectives and vision include delivering new ‘eye-opening’ product ranges, diversifying into new geographical regions and market sectors, championing engineering innovation and to be the lowest cost manufacturer in our sector – all strategies designed to fulfil ambitious financial targets,” said i2r’s Jon West.

“We welcome Dave Cobb to the company and very much look forward to his impetus in helping us to further develop i2r’s US market share.”
