“We are honored to be recognized for our innovative packaging solutions that help save lives,” said Jehanzeb Noor, VP and GM – Amcor Flexibles Medical North America.
Amcor Flexibles received the Gold Award in the ‘Technical Innovation’ category for Fortis – Amcor’s Breather Bags for Medical Sterilization Packaging.
Amcor’s patent pending Fortis results from the innovative use of both the packaging materials and the package design. Amcor produces the coextruded (blown film) bag material. Its in-house, multi-layer blown film equipment enables the cost-effective use of thin layers of several resins to produce a highly engineered film. This film has the strength, abuse resistance and the tear resistance necessary to protect medical instruments through gas sterilization and the distribution process.
