US-based packaging and material science company ProAmpac has acquired packaging manufacturer Specialty Packaging for an undisclosed sum.
Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Specialty Packaging produces paper, film, foil bags, sandwich wraps, basket liners and other custom products for the fast food and foodservice industries.
The company owns an advanced 100,000ft² facility where it produces custom and stock products.
The acquisition is intended to allow ProAmpac to add to its customized, recyclable food packaging solutions and expand its footprint into the US’ south-western region.
It will also help increase the company’s manufacturing capabilities and paper bag converting capacity.
ProAmpac founder and CEO Greg Tucker said: “Specialty Packaging has a very complementary offering of high-quality products and a proven commitment to customer service.
“I am eager to welcome the Specialty Packaging team to the ProAmpac family.
“We are excited to expand our customer relationships and enhance our manufacturing presence as we work together to strengthen our position as an industry leader in specialty, sustainable packaging.”
Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, ProAmpac engineers and manufactures flexible and sustainable packaging and material science solutions for the consumer, healthcare and e-commerce retail industries among others.
The company operates a network of more than 50 sites worldwide, serving more than 5,000 customers in 90 countries.
Specialty Packaging president Hank Dorris said: “We are pleased to join forces with the ProAmpac team, who values the history of our family-owned business and are committed to our company’s long-term growth,
“With ProAmpac’s extensive and comprehensive manufacturing capabilities, we will be able to better serve our existing customers while expanding into exciting new end-markets.”
In February this year, ProAmpac acquired Canada-based flexible packaging manufacturer Belle-Pak Packaging for an undisclosed sum.
Belle-Pak offers a broad range of packaging products, including packing list envelopes, custom medical and clinical bags, and poly mailers for online and logistics services.
