Patrick Heskins, BAMA chief executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome Pelican Communications as a partner in our drive to secure continued growth in the aerosol sector. The 2016 figures recently released confirm that the sector has continued to thrive despite challenging market conditions – to maintain growth it is essential manufacturers, brands and consumers recognise the integrity, versatility and high quality of the aerosol packaging format.
