Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed by the companies.

In a statement, Arcline said: “We are in the early innings of a once-in-a-generation shift in the packaging industry – the large-scale substitution of single-use plastic containers toward more sustainable aluminium containers.

“We are committed to supporting the anticipated volume growth of Pride’s customers by heavily investing in the company’s engineering and technology capabilities.

“Specifically, we plan to work with Pride to accelerate the rollout of its newest product, Synapse, that uses sensor-driven analytics to drive step-change quality and productivity improvements in our industry.”

“We look forward to playing a key role in the sustainable packaging industry as we invest in our next phase of growth.”
