Packsize International, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, a provider of On Demand Packaging® for businesses with corrugated packaging needs, yesterday (March 6) announced that it has opened a subsidiary operation in Australia. Sean Ledbury has joined as GM of Packsize Propriety Ltd. and oversees all of the company's business interests in Australia and New Zealand from an office in Sydney. 

"Packsize International welcomes this opportunity to empower the Australian and New Zealand markets with the many benefits brought about by On Demand Packaging," said company founder and CEO Hanko Kiessner. "While giving Sean management responsibility, we are excited to provide Packsize know-how and technical capabilities previously unavailable in this marketplace."

Ledbury has worked in the Asia-Pacific region for several years as a sales manager and managing director, most recently as manager of Dematic's Integrated Systems business. The Packsize team in Australia and New Zealand is already expanding further and looks to attract additional top talent to assist with several customer opportunities for the manufacturer's custom box-making machine systems, software, consumables, and accessories.

Reflecting on Packsize's opportunity in the Asia-Pacific region, Ledbury noted that "it has become increasingly important for businesses of all types to recognize the rising demand for sustainable packaging that also meets a growing trend toward smaller packaging units. A leading global consumer electronics business is among our first local customers to recognize Packsize's proven solution for delivering several tangible benefits and has projected savings of 15% in the size of its shipped cartons and a 30% to 40% reduction in concealed damage of its products shipped to customers. These savings have already been achieved in just their first few months with Packsize." 

Founded in 2002 and with operations in North America, Europe, and Australia, Packsize International is a provider of lean packaging systems for businesses with corrugated packaging needs. Packsize On Demand Packaging’s optimized box configurations reduce corrugated inventory requirements, increase handling and transportation efficiencies, and minimize wasted space.
