Jones Packaging (London, Ontario) has announced a $20-million investment in its business while unveiling a new corporate identity, as the company celebrates 100 years of service to the health and wellness markets. At the centre of the new identity is a corporate name change to Jones Healthcare Group, along with a new corporate logo (right) that better reflects its mission and the markets it serves.
Jones was founded on packaging for the healthcare industry as far back as a century ago, when it provided apothecary packaging to help pharmacists safely dispense medications to patients. Continuing this focus, the company added that the new identity reflects its continued vision to advance healthcare with progressive packaging platforms that put consumer wellbeing first, and respond to evolving market needs around the world. “Over a century ago, Jones provided apothecary packaging to help pharmacists safely dispense medication to patients,” said Ron Harris, President and CEO. “One thing has never wavered since our beginning – we have always been focused on wellness. It’s in our DNA.” The company has three business units and two European subsidiaries (Venalink UK and Venalink Spain).
“We offer our clients unique expertise across a range of health and wellness sectors,” said Christine Jones Harris, Principal, Corporate Development. “As an organization rooted in innovation, we collaborate with global government regulators and agencies, educational institutions and advocacy groups to understand what’s important to consumers and build solutions for the future – such as connected and intelligent packaging.”
With the launch of its new name and logo, the company has also created an updated corporate website at www.joneshealthcaregroup.com.
