We are only in March and it's amazing how much has happened in 2020. I have been on board as responsible CSO at Perlen Packaging since January 2020 and I am happy to continue the work of my predecessor together with the Perlen Team.
I look forward to working with you and exchanging ideas with you. The past financial year is already history for all of us, and yet it is worth looking back at the activities of Perlen Packaging and our parent company CPH Holding: 2019 saw a very good performance with record results in the packaging sector. Read the extracts from the currently published CPH annual report.
For the year 2020 as a whole, we have set ourselves decent growth targets and are happy about a successful start into the year. Thanks to an encouraging demand situation, our calendaring and coating lines are very well loaded in the first quarter of 2020.
Below please find a link to sign in for our newsletter. Here we inform you about the further development of our product portfolio: At the request of our customers, we have added Tristar ultra in a Silver version, we are consistently expanding our MultiLayer ultra product family and are working intensively on the further technical development of our PERLAMEDTM BLISTair System.
In 2020, like many of you, we will focus on the further development of our sustainability activities. Being part of the CPH Holding with over 200 years of history, we take our responsibility for a sustainable business conduct seriously.
We look forward to supporting you this year with great commitment with your ideas, developments and projects related to pharmaceutical barrier films.
In view of the turbulent developments related to the corona virus, I wish you and all of us that we keep an eye on the essentials, while dealing with the consequences and the necessary measures. Wishing that we make appropriate and good decisions and that our cooperation should not suffer as a result, but that we all leave this phase even stronger.
