Over its 100-year-plus history, Sonoco Products has steadily assembled a diverse portfolio of industrial and consumer packaging product offerings such as flexible and rigid plastics, reels and spools, pallets, and composite cans. In the next few years, Sonoco believes to continue to invest in its advantaged product lines (composite cans, tubes and cores), primarily through overseas acquisitions. Sonoco has raised its dividend annually for more than 30 years, a streak the company expect to continue.
