US-based hybrid packaging provider Berlin Packaging has acquired Andler Packaging Group, a value-added company that supplies containers and closures.
Founded in 1893, Andler Packaging began as a bottle recycler and later expanded its business by supplying plastic, glass and metal containers and closures.
The company operates multiple locations across Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland and Florida.
It caters to a wide range of markets, with expertise in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
In addition, Andler Packaging provides customers with value-added services, including printing and labelling capabilities, proprietary custom tools, and repacking and sterilisation services.
The financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
Berlin Packaging Americas CEO Rick Brandt said: “We are excited to welcome Andler Packaging to Berlin Packaging.
“Like Berlin, Andler Packaging’s mission is to provide outstanding customer service and support while fostering an environment with its employees that encourages and rewards creativity, initiative and effort.
“This combination will enhance our industry-leading capabilities and bring even more thrill to our customers along the Atlantic Coast.”
The acquisition is Berlin Packaging’s second in North America and its fourth worldwide so far this year.
The company will retain all of Andler Packaging’s employees and locations.
Berlin Packaging Global CEO and president Bill Hayes said: “We are extremely proud this family business chose to become our partners and are confident we will achieve great things together for our customers, suppliers and employees.”
Andler Packaging managing director Sam Andler said: “We have a longstanding relationship with Berlin Packaging, not only as a competitor but also as a customer and supplier.
“Berlin Packaging’s values and dedication to customer thrill make this an excellent partnership. I look forward to continued growth for our company and our employees.”
Earlier this month, Berlin Packaging acquired Verrerie du Comtat, a France-based supplier of glass packaging for the wine and olive oil industries.
