In September 2021, Redwire became a public company by merging with Genesis Park Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company, to fuel further acquisitions.

Footprint, a global materials science technology company focused on creating a healthier planet, released a case study highlighting its recent development of a custom plant-based fiber tray to package the GilletteLabs Razor with Exfoliating Bar. Gillette, the world’s leading expert in men’s grooming and a core brand in the portfolio of multinational consumer goods corporation Procter & Gamble (P&G), became the first brand to implement Footprint’s new color-based molded fiber in its packaging. The plastic-free, certified recyclable tray from Footprint supports Gillette’s goal to achieve 100% recyclable packaging by 2030, as well as Footprint’s goal to create a healthier planet.

In December 2021, Footprint announced its intention to list on NASDAQ as a public company in a business combination agreement with Gores Holdings VIII, Inc. (Nasdaq: GIIX, GIIXW and GIIXU).
