Jan. 26th, 2023:

Global flexible-packaging and lidding-films supplier KM Packaging is pleased to announce the establishment of our official business entity in Australia. In an important landmark in the company’s history, KM Packaging Services ANZ Pty Ltd has been incorporated in Sydney, N.S.W., as of Dec. 2, 2022.

KM Packaging has been exporting to Australasia since 1996, and outside of the U.S., it is the company’s second-biggest export market. As a result of continued growth and success, the KM business is now at a scale that can support this further international development, which is a key part of the company’s long-term strategic-growth plans.

John Shipley, KM’s Business Unit Director for the Australian and European markets, said: “This expansion has been two years in the planning, and we are excited to build even stronger relationships with our partners and customers in the region.


“The move will allow us to explore new opportunities right across the chilled, frozen and ambient-ready meal, convenience and fresh produce, and protein sectors.”

Supporting the initiative, Tammy Spencer has been appointed as Business Unit Manager (ANZ) based on the Gold Coast in Queensland. Tammy has a wealth of experience and was most recently Business Manager of Packaging & Polymers (QLD) with TCL Hofmann and previously with Multivac.

John said: “The establishment of the ANZ company and Tammy’s appointment allow us to provide local time zone support. We now have a greater dedicated resource to offer KM’s wider range, site visits and provide an enhanced service to our customers ‘in market’.

Tammy said: “KM has always had a strong reputation in the ANZ market. Customers spoke highly of their service and quality, so I knew they were a business with a strong customer focus and core values that I admire.”

John added: “We are delighted to get Tammy on board. She is a very capable, conscientious, and personable individual. A perfect fit for KM’s culture and I’m sure she will be a great success in developing our growth in Australia and New Zealand.”
