Under the Ten- sion brand there will be three distinct divisions: Tension Envelope, Tension Packaging & Automation, and Tension International. “Envelopes are our core business and a critical part of Tension’s future. However, we have diversified to grow our business. ” said President and CEO, Bill Berkley. “ We are expanding our global presence and our leadership in packag- ing and automation solutions.
