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.
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.
“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 CEO.
