U.S. Packaging Company, Bemis Company, Inc., is establishing its European Business Services Centre in Campsie, Londonderry, creating up to 95 jobs by 2021.

Headquartered in Wisconsin, the global polymer-based packaging company is setting up this new Business Services Centre in Northern Ireland to support its European operations. It already has an established healthcare packaging manufacturing facility in Campsie.

Bemis is planning to create up to 95 new positions in Finance and IT over the next five years, offering competitive salary and benefit packages. Recruitment could extend to other functions in the future.

Invest NI CEO Alastair Hamilton said:

Bemis Company makes a valuable contribution to Northern Ireland’s vibrant Life Sciences industry, employing over 200 staff at its manufacturing facility. This investment to establish its European Business Services Centre here is a significant coup for Londonderry”.

“A number of other locations were considered for this project, but as a result of the collaborative efforts of Invest NI and Derry City & Strabane District Council, we successfully pitched the city as an attractive investment location.

Bemis Company, Inc., a NYSE listed business, delivers flexible and rigid plastic packaging for food, consumer products, medical, and pharmaceutical companies around the globe.

Marty Scaminaci, Bemis Company’s Vice President of Global Business Services said:

“Establishing our European Business Services Centre in Londonderry is a strategic investment to help drive efficiencies and standardise our processes. We have successfully operated a manufacturing facility in Northern Ireland since 1996, and know it to be a great location to do business. The availability of skilled graduates in the area, engagement of local council representatives, and the support offered from Invest NI were all critical factors in our decision to locate this centre in Northern Ireland.”
