Pregis has acquired Easypack, Hertfordshire, UK, a paper-based protective packaging company, for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition will enable Pregis to expand its North American product portfolio to include a complete line of paper void fill, cushioning and block/brace solutions.
“We are continuously looking for ways to support brand owners with offerings that will meet any protective packaging needs they might have to create a positive customer experience. This latest acquisition enables us to expand our performance-oriented paper packaging offering in North America, as well as provide Easypack with inflatable packaging solutions to support the European markets they serve,” said Kevin Baudhuin, president and chief executive officer.
Pregis will continue to operate Easypack’s three UK manufacturing facilities, as well as offices and distribution centers in France and Germany. Easypack employs approximately 70 people across Europe.
“Easypack, with its 20-plus year track record of innovation in paper packaging solutions, is a welcomed addition to the Pregis family. Its successful expansion into Europe led to the company being awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for International Trade on three occasions. We look forward to sharing technology to offer even more protective packaging solutions to customers in North America and Europe,” Baudhuin said.
Easypack was established in 1992 in Hertfordshire, UK, when a gap in the market was identified. This led to the development of a range of environmentally-friendly, quality, high-performance paper-based cushion and void fill systems, designed specifically for industrial consumption.
