Quadpack Foundation lends a helping hand in 2017

Europe, UK, Ireland, Iberia, Spain, France, Switzerland, France, Italy

Quadpack Foundation works to make the world a cleaner, fairer, more beautiful place to live. Throughout 2017, Quadpack's charitable arm supported a number of social and environmental projects in Europe.

Can Déu reforestation project, Sabadell, Spain

Starting last year, it continued its ongoing sponsorship of the Can Déu reforestation project in Spain. Forest owner and manager Fundació Antigua Caixa Sabadell is organising the area's reforestation, following the destruction caused by a storm in 2014.

Charity photocall for Children's Oncology, Barcelona, Spain

The Vall d'Hebron Hospital hosted a photocall at a busy Barcelona shopping centre, with all proceeds donated to the hospital's research into paediatric oncology. Quadpack Foundation funded materials and photographer's services, and donated framed baby prints for the paediatric ward.

Riding for the Disabled, Abingdon, UK

Quadpack Foundation supported the construction of an indoor arena for this horse-riding school, which aims to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of disabled people. The new arena will enable it to increase the number of riders it can accommodate, thereby reducing its long waiting list.

Capaç-i-tant integration project, Manlleu, Spain

The Capaç-i-tant project, run by TAC Osona, helps young people with mental disabilities integrate into the labour market. The organisation is setting up a training facility, where beneficiaries can prepare for employment through classes and job simulations, supported by a team of psychologists, social workers and trainers.

Les Blouses Roses, Paris, France

Volunteers from Les Blouses Roses spend time with children in hospitals, reading books and telling stories, keeping them company when their family cannot. Quadpack Foundation sponsored the Teddy Bear project, where children are given cuddly toys to give them comfort during hospitalisation.

Città Infinita family events, Italy and Spain

Città Infinita is a participatory event for families, a construction game to build cities using mainly industrial wood residues, including hundreds of wooden pieces from the Technotraf factory, donated by Quadpack Foundation.

Quadpack Foundation is a non-profit organisation established by Quadpack Industries in 2016, out of a desire to give back to the communities that have given the company a home. Through Quadpack Foundation, it aims to share its success by acknowledging beauty in all its forms. Especially the beauty that’s inside us, and the natural beauty that surrounds us.

Louvrette one year on: a successful journey

What happens when German engineering excellence meets creativity born in Barcelona? A raft of innovative solutions, developed, produced and delivered in a way that’s sustainable, creative and efficient. That is just one of the outcomes of the rare but successful ‘marriage’ between German manufacturer Louvrette and Quadpack. A lot has happened in the year since the acquisition, which pushed Quadpack into the Top 10 of European beauty packaging providers.

As Sustainability and Innovation are key priorities for Quadpack and the global consumer market, the organisation feels the responsibility to work with supply partners from all regions to establish a new way of doing business, where collaboration is the new competition.
