Sealed Air Corp. announced last month that it is establishing a new global headquarters in Charlotte, NC. The company will relocate to a modern, state-of-the-art, environmentally-sustainable campus that will become the headquarters for its divisions, research & development facilities and corporate offices.
Within the next three years, Sealed Air anticipated approximately 1,300 jobs will be relocated to Charlotte from its current headquarters in Elmwood Park, NJ; and all or part of its facilities in Saddle Brook, NJ; Danbury, CT; Racine, WI; and Duncan and Greenville, SC. The company will also relocate a small number of employees from other locations.
"We are confident Charlotte will provide a great environment for us to operate and grow our business moving forward. This move will contribute to a stronger, one-company culture that will enable greater collaboration, efficiencies, and better use of our investments in people and new technologies," said Jerome Peribere, president and CEO of Sealed Air.
Sealed Air will continue to maintain manufacturing in its Saddle Brook and Danbury facilities, as well as certain operations in Duncan. The company's Simpsonville and Seneca, SC, sites will also continue its manufacturing operations.
Sealed Air generated revenues in 2013 of approximately $7.7 billion by helping customers achieve their sustainability goals in the face of today's biggest social and environmental challenges. The company's brands include Cryovac brand food packaging solutions, Bubble Wrap brand cushioning and Diversey cleaning and hygiene solutions. Sealed Air has approximately 25,000 employees who serve customers in 175 countries.
