Südpack Verpackungen has acquired fellow flexible packaging firm Seville Flexpack Corporation in order to strengthen its business in the US.

Previously, Südpack’s only base in the country was a sales office in the Chicago area. But now at the facility in Oak Creek, processing steps including printing and refining will be conducted for the US market.

Johannes Remmele, managing partner at Südpack, said:  “We’d been looking for a suitable candidate for our US business for quite some time, and we’re very pleased to have found the right partner in Seville Flexpack in Oak Creek. The site is ideal in a number of ways: the facilities offer modern equipment for flexographic and rotogravure printing, sufficient storage capacity, and most importantly: highly experienced employees. In addition, it’s located at the heart of the US meat and cheese industry – two key customer segments for our packaging solutions. Taken together, it’s the perfect fit for our corporate group.”
