Jerome Peribere, Sealed Air CEO, and Ilham Kadri, President of the Diversey Care division, hosted the grand opening with over 100 customers, press and industry representatives present.

During the official opening ceremony presentations were given by Pim van den Berg, Vice Governor of the Province of Utrecht, Jeroen Nijland, Commissioner of the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency, and Patrick Mikkelsen, Executive Director of the American Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands. They all stressed the importance of Sealed Air's long-standing commitment to the Netherlands, and the part that the country's business environment has played in Sealed Air's success.
