PEMCO AS has completed the sale of Peterson Packaging, the largest independent corrugated packaging provider in Scandinavia, to VPK. Pöyry Capital acted as financial adviser to PEMCO.
Peterson Packaging manufactures corrugated packaging, Point-of-Sale solutions and corrugated sheets for Scandinavian FMCG and industrial clients. In 2015 Peterson achieved a turnover of Euro 150 million and had approximately 800 employees.
With the acquisition, VPK, one of the most successful integrated packaging companies in Europe, continues to deliver on its growth strategy in the corrugated packaging sector and has now gained an important manufacturing footprint in the Scandinavia corrugated packaging market.
Celedonio Moncayo, Managing Director at Pöyry Capital commented “We are thrilled to announce this closing. PEMCO has done a tremendous job in restructuring and improving the Peterson Packaging operations in Scandinavia. We thank PEMCO for selecting us to help them through this sale process. We believe that Peterson is a good complement to VPK. VPK and its Blue Box Partners are now able to supply corrugated packaging solutions to Pan-European FMCG and Industrial clients in Scandinavia, Western Europe and the Iberian Peninsula”.
