Sealed Air Corp. to Use PORTAL for R&D
An agreement with Sealed Air Corp. to lease temporary research and development space at the PORTAL building advances UNC Charlotte’s standing as North Carolina’s urban research institution, University officials say. It also is a tangible illustration of the University’s commitment to foster partnerships with private industry.
On Nov. 16, the University and the company announced the partnership, which calls for the University to house the company’s research and development personnel for 18 months or longer. The arrangement provides temporary work space for the company’s researchers while a permanent facility is being built in Charlotte.
Best known as the maker of Bubble Wrap, Sealed Air has been around since 1960. The company also makes food packaging, packing foam, medical packaging and other products. In 2014, the company generated revenue of approximately $7.8 billion. Sealed Air has approximately 24,000 employees who serve customers in 175 countries.
