Sonoco’s Display and Packaging unit will be located in Duracell’s new leased facility in the Atlanta area. Sonoco will install and operate state-of-the-art primary packaging equipment at the new center and provide all packaging materials. In addition, the Company will produce retail merchandising displays which will also be packed out at the same facility.

“This unprecedented go-to-market packaging solution for Duracell is unlike any effort provided in our industry,” said Jack Sanders, Sonoco president and chief executive officer. “Because Sonoco is a solutions company which offers multiple packaging products and services, we are able to meet all of Duracell’s unique packaging and retail merchandising needs.”

Full production is expected in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Sales of packaging and services annualized over the five-year contract period are expected to be more than $50 million.
