One of the aspects of my job I particularly enjoy is finding quirky stories to do with metal packaging and the public’s love for cans. This week I stumbled upon an interesting story to do with a flag from some football supporters in the UK, or soccer for those of you reading from the other side of the pond.
The latest in the PPG/AkzoNobel saga this week has been particularly interesting, with the news that PPG has decided to withdraw its proposal and not pursue an offer. With a visible conflict between the company and its shareholders, it will be interesting to see how long AkzoNobel can see off careful admirers…
AkzoNobel has opened a new performance coatings production facility in Chonburi, Thailand.
I’m afraid to be the bearer of more bad news, but it’s with great sadness that we have learnt of the passing of Hindustan Tin Works’ Atit Bhatia. He sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 35.
