It´s really been quite an eventful first seven months at the helm of Lemtapes.
Like everyone else, we have been coping with Covid19 to the best of our abilities, waiting to be vaccinated and hoping to return to some state of normality after the summer months. This all seems to be happening at its own pace in different corners of the world.
While all this is happening, both Lemtapes and our customers’ businesses have experienced an uptake in demand that we haven’t seen in a while. This strongly supports our belief that we are doing the right things, at the right time, and in the right industries. The demand for renewable fibre-based materials in both of our customer segments, woodworking and packaging, is growing steadily.
This demand has been driven, at least partly, by the pandemic. Building, renovation and home improvements are driving the woodworking industry and the pandemic has turned even more consumers towards e-commerce.
For e-commerce solutions, we are seeing a new level of interest towards our Open Tape solution. Combined with sealing Fingerlift tape, this can offer the best imaginable packaging experience for both the consumer and the retailer.
As always, we’d be delighted to tell you more about these solutions and work with your package designers.
