Following a brief reception in advance of the arrival of the Lord Lieutenant, invited guests gathered in the reception area of the premises to hear CEO Peter Reay welcome everybody, offering some background information on how the company had got to this point and explaining the format of the day: “As a business we are about to reach our 10th Anniversary - still very much a young company, but we seem to have travelled a fair way in that single decade to where we are now, being the UK’s largest aluminium foil container producer, with I may add, a fast growing and exciting new division in tulip muffin wraps and greaseproof paper.”

Peter then passed over to Sir Algernon Heber-Percy to officially open the factory by revealing a wall plaque and the cutting of a ribbon to mark the occasion. In a short, but entertaining speech, Sir Algernon said that he was very impressed at the fast paced growth that i2r had achieved in such a short time and very much looked forward to learning more about the business.

Peter Reay then escorted the Lord Lieutenant on a tour of the premises, whilst guests were invited to the boardroom for a corporate presentation by commercial director, Jon West. Guests also toured the site during the proceedings, following which a buffet lunch was served.

Operating as part of the Italian Laminazione Sottile Group - one of the leading global suppliers of aluminium products - i2r Packaging Solutions manufacture a comprehensive range of wrinkle wall and smooth wall semi-rigid aluminium foil containers used throughout the food industry.

The company recently launched a baking division, manufacturing a full range of tulip muffin wraps and greaseproof papers. i2r is the only UK manufacturer to provide the baking industry with a single source for both aluminium foil containers and FSC accredited tulip paper products.

i2r Packaging Solutions will be exhibiting on stand L42 at Packaging Innovations at the NEC, Birmingham on 1-2 May. They will also be exhibiting on stand N1630 at IFE on 19-22 March, and on stand G39 at the Farm Shop & Deli Show on 24-26 April.
