Pont Packaging’s brand new development, on Steuber Drive in Irlam has a warehouse space of 42,000 sq. feet, dwarfing that of its predecessor in Trafford Park, where the company spent 15 years.

Sharing creates solutions
With the increasingly-strict EU regulations on single use plastics, greater consumer pressure to deliver responsible packaging and a necessary focus on the negative impact that plastic waste creates in our environment, PONT proudly sees its role to inform, assist and support brands in making their packaging future-proof.
Ever since PONT was founded as a glass packaging supplier in Amsterdam in 1906, creating sustainable packaging has been our goal. Sustainable packaging is in our DNA. Now more than ever, we must share our solutions-based knowledge of how packaging can support a circular economy. www.mygreenpackaging.com is our home for that knowledge; to offer as much insight, information and guidance as we can for our customers.

The Frequently Asked Questions section is especially helpful in terms of addressing core concerns, with PET, rPET, glass and other packaging substrates all discussed.
