ProAmpac acquires Specialty Packaging
Cincinnati-based ProAmpac, a leader in flexible packaging and material science, today announced that it has acquired Specialty Packaging, Inc., a family-owned manufacturer of specialty paper, film and foil packaging products for the fast-food and foodservice industries. The addition of Specialty Packaging’s complementary product portfolio and manufacturing capabilities extends ProAmpac’s reach with foodservice customers and expands its footprint to the southwestern United States.
Based in Fort Worth, TX, Specialty Packaging is a leading provider of paper, film, foil bags, sandwich wraps, basket liners and other custom products for longtime blue-chip fast-food and foodservice brands. The company produces custom and stock paper, film and foil products from its state-of-the-art, 100,000-sq-ft facility. With this acquisition, ProAmpac broadens its portfolio of highly customized, recyclable food-packaging solutions and increases its paper-bag converting capacity.
Greg Tucker, Founder and CEO of ProAmpac, says, “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.”
