Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Pregis Hexacomb, Deerfield, Ill., USA, has received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody certification for products produced at its Ermelo, Netherlands, production facility. The company is one of the first honeycomb producers to receive FSC certification. There are two parts to the FSC system. The Forest Management certification ensures that the forest is managed to high standards covering social, environmental, and economic issues. The Chain of Custody certification traces the wood from those forests through all stages of processing and distribution.

The Ermelo facility is one of three Hexacomb plants located in Europe. The other two are located in Amboise, France and Aoiz, Spain. The Ermelo plant services customers within a 1,000 km (620 mile) radius of its 10,000 square meter (107,000 square foot) plant. This impacts customers in the UK, Spain, France, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Austria, and Italy.
