The partnership will provide training and improve the employability of people at risk of social exclusion

Quadpack Foundation, the non-profit arm of Quadpack, is partnering with the Catalan branch of the Spanish Red Cross to help improve the employment prospects of people at risk of social exclusion.

The agreement, signed last September at Red Cross’ headquarters in Barcelona, Spain, aims to provide training, counselling and internet access to a group of participants of the Red Cross Employment Plan, to be selected by both organisations. Besides funding office training, Quadpack Foundation will facilitate participants’ entry in the job market through individual mentoring sessions with Quadpack employees.

The collaboration with the Catalan branch of the Spanish Red Cross is part of a series of actions the Foundation is taking to positively impact Quadpack’s surrounding communities and the society. “As a company, our role is to support our community and give its people the opportunity to thrive. We are proud to partner with the Red Cross to have a positive impact through education and employment. Having had the privilege to meet and learn about them, I am full of admiration and respect for their amazing work,” said Tim Eaves, Chairman of Quadpack Foundation and CEO & co-founder of Quadpack.

“Thanks to the partnership with Quadpack, we will be able to facilitate the employment prospects of people at risk of social exclusion. This alliance will not only help to improve their employability, but also guarantee internet access, so the participants can continue with their career plans,” said Josep Quitet, President of the Catalan branch of the Spanish Red Cross.

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.
