Smurfit Kappa And Nestlé Waters Win 'Innovation For Business' Accolade In Trophées des Achats
Smurfit Kappa and Nestlé Waters have won a top prize in the Trophée des Achats programme, an awards scheme that recognises outstanding achievements between purchasing departments and suppliers.
The award, for Innovation for Business, was presented to the two companies for the development of a machine solution called the Smurfit Kappa Rotor, which enables them to achieve mutual commercial benefits.
The Rotor system has been developed to allow reels of anti-slip paper to be cut on demand to the desired pallet size, instead of using traditional pre-cut sheets.
“This is a very exciting achievement, and we are honoured to share the award with our partners at Nestlé Waters," said Didier Durcudoy, Smurfit Kappa European account director.
"The Rotor system has brought much excitement to purchasing leaders in the industry, and we continue to put innovation at the heart of our business in order to maximise success for our customers.”
