Maryland Thermoform Corporation (MTC) has received the Global Supplier Achievement Award from Procter and Gamble for the sixth time in seven years having converted its packaging to ‘greener’ alternatives whilst cutting costs.

The Beauty Care Division of Procter and Gamble presented the award to suppliers based on quality, service, delivery, innovation and price.


The award was presented by Donna Nawalkowsky, global Upstream Organization Leader and Phil Sheehey global Cosmetics and Skin Supply Chain Director.

Greener levels and lower costs

Speaking of the eventual winner, Nawalkowsky said, “Maryland Thermoform Corporation had worked very closely with Procter & Gamble in converting all their packaging to a ‘greener’ level while maintaining excellent deliveries, quality and cost savings.”

Proud recipient MTC expressed its delight claiming the award is the highest recognition given to vendors in this competitive field.

“It’s an honor to receive the award and we are grateful to be recognized for our outstanding value combination of price, delivery and sustainability,”​ said Scott Macdonald, CEO of Maryland Thermoform.

MTC has been a qualified member of the International Organization of Standardization, registered with Design, for seven years, and Macdonald contributes the success in part to its ability to quickly respond to changes in the marketplace.

Sustainable material use

Last month MTC was chosen as a pioneering site for its early use of Pentaform rigid TerraPET film, a renewable resource film, by the Klöckner Pentaplast Group.

As with standard APET films, the TerraPET film offers the same functional properties such as durability, performance, and brilliant clarity. According to MTC, it successfully formed and heat-sealed the film to provide packaging & components manufactured in this material that are available to the industry today.

In an ongoing effort to lead the way in cutting edge sustainable materials, MTC says it chose to work with Klöckner Pentaplast as its material provider based on Klöckner’s commitment to new product innovation in today’s packaging environment.

Made in part from sugar cane, the films allow customers to replace fossil fuel based material with up to 30 percent plant based material, which is more sustainable over the long term than commonly used clear packaging material.
