Shortly after AICC, The Independent Packaging Association announced the Education Investor opportunity, Fosber America declared its commitment to the independent packaging industry and AICC by signing on as the first Investor.
Investors will assist AICC and The Packaging School’s education professionals with the development of online courses. Jeff Pallini, President, Fosber America, said, "Fosber is excited to partner with AICC in educational training for the industry. It provides us the opportunity to promote our company while giving back to the industry through sharing of information.”
Mike D’Angelo, Vice President, AICC, said, "it’s very gratifying and says a lot about the spirit in our industry that AICC got its first Education Investor commitment based on a verbal outline of the program at an Associate Members’ Meeting. Our grand plans for a brochure with a coordinated information campaign are still necessary, but not to get the first investor. Thanks to Fosber and Jeff Pallini for seeing that the future is in education. The industry will reward you for your vision.”
AICC’s goal is to educate and create experts within the Packaging Industry. Fosber is working with AICC to develop an online learning experience on corrugated. Fosber has been an avid supporter of AICC and its education initiatives. Their course will be available in February 2018.
