Polysack strengthens its management team | Labels and labeling


Polysack, a maker of recyclable films for flexible packaging, has made a series of leadership appointments that support the company’s long-term growth strategy and its intention to transform the flexible packaging film market.

Polysack invests in its leadership team and go-to-market strategy to support its customers and partners in industries such as food, pet care, home care, personal care and confectionery, seeking to minimize their environmental footprint.

Alex Baumgartner has joined Polysack as Chairman of the Board, bringing over 25 years of experience, including five years as CEO of Constantia Flexibles. While leading the world’s third-largest producer of flexible packaging, he was responsible for R&D strategy in recyclable packaging and the company’s global transformation to 100% flexible packaging. Baumgartner sees the latest developments in recyclable films as a huge opportunity to accelerate the transformation of the flexible packaging industry.

“It’s a really exciting time for the global flexible packaging market, as companies reflect on what a large-scale shift to recyclable materials means. As brand owners make big changes to meet 2025 recyclability targets, we will see a major industry shift worth billions of dollars for players willing to embrace change,” Baumgartner commented. “Polysack has an excellent track record of manufacturing high quality eco-friendly products and working closely with customers and recyclers to provide circular solutions. Our Pack ‘N’ Cycle products have seen a CAGR of 300% over the past three years, so it’s clear that our Mono Oriented Polyethylene (MOPE) film is a game changer for the industry. We are perfectly positioned to take advantage of the vast opportunity to lead the way in recyclable materials.

Yaron Bar, who joined the Polysack team as Chief Operating Officer, also strengthens the Polysack team. Bar brings 35 years of operational experience in various industries including pharmaceuticals, chemicals, plastics and packaging. He has held positions such as Director of Global Operations at Keter Plastic and CEO of Teva’s subsidiary, as well as senior roles at several pharmaceutical companies.

The company also named a new vice president of marketing and business development, Yair Gellis, with 25 years of industry experience, including having led flexible packaging at HP Indigo.

“These appointments come at a pivotal time for Polysack and the flexible packaging industry,” commented Yanir Aharonson, CEO of Polysack. “We know the industry is on the verge of a move to a much more sustainable model that relies on the widespread adoption of 100% recyclable products, and our Pack ‘N’ Cycle products are designed to enable this transition. We believe the combination of our leadership team, market-leading solutions, and business vision positions us first and foremost to play a key role in driving this transformation.
