Bemis Company, Inc. (www.bemis.com) announces that it has realigned its segment reporting. As a result, Bemis will report business segment information for three reportable segments as follows: U.S. Packaging, Global Packaging, and Pressure Sensitive Materials. The expansion from two to three reportable segments reflects the separation of the Flexible Packaging business segment into U.S. Packaging and Global Packaging business segments. The Pressure Sensitive Materials business segment is unchanged.
The U.S. Packaging segment represents all food, consumer, and industrial products packaging-related manufacturing operations located in the United States. The Global Packaging business segment includes all Bemis' packaging-related manufacturing operations located outside of the United States as well as our global medical device and pharmaceutical packaging manufacturing operations.
Bemis reported under this new business segment structure during its fourth quarter and full year 2012 earnings call in January.
