Amcor Company History

Amcor was founded in 1860 by Samuel Ramsden. It started as a paper mill business in Australia. Its first name was Australian Paper Manufacturers until they started with the packaging business in 1970. It was only in 1986 when the company changed its name to Amcor.

Smurfit Tobacco Products along with Stevens Flexible Packaging was acquired by Amcor in 1999. The following year, Amcor Fiber Packaging and Amcor Containers Packaging merged with Amcor becoming a single unit of business called the Amcor Packaging Australasia.

In 2004, Amcor made a business partnership with Campbell Soup Company to assist in the production of the bottles of polyethylene terepthalates. The following year, Vision Grande purchased two of the tobacco packaging plants of the company in China. The company owned 41.1 percent of Vision Grande shares by June of 2006. Also, the company has dissociated from its corrugated, tobacco and sacks business for a total of 49 million US dollars in Asia.

New products were introduced by Amcor in 2005. A variety of baking tray carton boards with the brand name TrayBon, was introduced by Amcor Sunclipse in North America. It was also in the same year when PowerFlex PET with Trade Winds Single-serve Tea was launched by Amcor.
