OUR ORGANISATION

Organisational structure

AR Packaging is organised since 2016 in three divisions: Branded Products, Barrier Packaging and Food Packaging in which the operational and financial performance is managed. Each division mainly consists of two business segments, each with distinct business characteristics and often catering for specific end-customer demand. On Group level, certain central functions coordinate joint Group activities and support the divisions, such as sourcing, innovation and key account management.

Extended management meetings with operational and sales focus respectively are held 3-4 times per year, where sales managers and corporate support functions also participate.
