Sealed Air Corp. announced Wednesday that it will move some of its jobs in Danbury to Charlotte, N.C., as part of a consolidation that will also relocate the company's global headquarters from Elmwood Park, N.J.
Sealed Air has about 175 positions in Danbury. Manufacturing operations will remain there, but some non-manufacturing positions — less than 50 — will be relocated, a company spokesman said.
The company, which makes Bubble Wrap and other packaging systems, said it will move about 1,300 jobs from Elmwood Park to Charlotte within three years.
"The company will relocate to a modern, state-of-the art, environmentally sustainable campus that will become the headquarters for its divisions, research and development facilities, and corporate offices," the company said in a press release.
The move will also include all or part of operations in Saddle Brook, N.J.; Racine, Wisc.; and Duncan and Greenville, S.C., the company said. It will maintain manufacturing operations in Saddle Brook and certain functions in Duncan, and will continue manufacturing in Simpsonville and Seneca, S.C., the company said.
In 2013, Sealed Air reported, the company had revenues of about $7.7 billion.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
